Judaic studies, the arts and the humanities constitute this academic and religious program. Students with diverse educational experiences and varying degrees of experience with Judaism engage with scholars, artists, activists and experiential educators. Field trips and meetings with relevant professionals supplement hands-on seminars. Courses vary by year but include such subjects as journalism, law, technology and world religion. Afternoon and evening workshops provide direct experiences with Israeli foods, music, folk dancing and creative writing. Select participants may return to Genesis for a second summer to take a Brandeis undergraduate communications course for college credit.
