The Program for Jewish Civilization (PJC) at Georgetown University is home to the study of the global dimensions of Judaism throughout the ages and especially in our own era, with an emphasis on the ethical aspects of Jewish civilization and its interrelationship with other peoples and polities.

Multimedia: Visit PJCMedia, where serious scholarship assumes a visually compelling digital form... featuring videos, blogs and images from the students and faculty of the Program for Jewish Civilization. PJCMedia is a place where Judaism is refracted through the prism of our team’s idiosyncratic worldview. (You may also access audio and video from past events.)
