the Judaic studies program at Wayne
State.
"First, it would be highly academic.
We would bring in the best, most
respected people from this country
and abroad," he said.
"Second, it would enhance the abili-
ty of Wayne State to [do] outreach
into metropolitan Detroit's Jewish
community. Every speaker or program
we present appears one time in a
venue in the Jewish community and
another time at the university.
"Third," Zeltzer said, "the Center
would inter-relate.with the general
community — the Armenian commu-
nity, the African-American communi-
ty, religious institutions of all faiths."
In 1990, U.S. District Judge Avern
Cohn and John Haddow families
pledged a total of $250,000 to begin
an endowment fund for the program
that today exceeds $1 million.
Federation no longer provides finan-
cial support.
John Haddow, co-chair with. Zeltzer
of the Center's advisory committee,
said he and Cohn had decided to
underwrite the program because they
felt the need for Wayne State to con-
tribute "more of a Jewish feeling
throughout the whole community."
Because of the Center, he said, "We
do have more visibility here, and in
the academic community as a whole.
We get calls from all over the world
from people who want to speak here."
The Cohn-Haddow Center offers
many video and audiotapes of past
events. In addition, its existence has
spurred the Wayne State University
Press to make Judaic studies one of its
specialties, publishing 15-30 books on
Jewish subjects each year.
WSU does offer several courses in
Hebrew and Judaism as part of its
undergraduate curriculum and this
year is beginning a minor in religious

studies.
Dr. David Weinberg, Cohn-
Haddow's director since 1995, said the
decision not to run the center as a
teaching facility "has proved to be a
strength, freeing us to do program-
ming that other centers of Jewish stud-

"Every speaker or
program appears
in the Jewish
community, and
at the university."

ies cannot do."
"It is very important that people get
the idea that Jewish studies is a rich
and vibrant field of intellectual study,"
said Dr. Weinberg, who also is a pro-
fessor of history.
"Jewish studies is subject to the same
standards as general education: the
only criterion is that we maintain the
high level of scholarship that Wayne
State has become known for."



Programs of the Cohn-Haddow
Center for this academic year
include a Chanukah concert at
the Jewish Community Cente in
Oak Parkr, a dialogue with chil-
dren of Holocaust survivors and
a two-day conference on the
changing role of women in
American Jewish religious life.
All programs are free and open
to the public. For information,
