The series Contemporary Israeli Voices was initiated, is curated and has been organized by Dalit Katz, Director of the Center for Jewish Studies. The series showcases the most contemporary voices in Israeli society especially in the arts: literature, films and TV shows. The series was conceived in 2002 and is offered annually in the fall.  All events in the series are an essential part of the Hebrew program’s groundbreaking curriculum at Wesleyan University.  Contemporary Israeli Voices celebrates women’s and minorities’ voices as well as the growing success of Israeli films and TV in Hollywood and around the world.

Contemporary Israeli Voices is free and open to the Wesleyan community as well as the general community.
