Join us for one month of summer fun and learning at Brandeis University! The full summer session runs from July 2-29.
Genesis is unlike any other high school classroom learning experience. The courses examine areas of knowledge that begin with an academic discipline as seen through a uniquely Jewish lens. Our faculty lead you through complex, compelling topics that encourage critical thinking and challenge assumptions. Jewish texts, traditions and perspectives infuse your study of subjects ranging from gender to technology to world religions and cultures. This year Genesis will offer courses in Culinary Art and Anthropology, Gender, Sexuality and Society, Environmental Science, Social Entrepreneurship, Technology Innovation Studio and World Religions and Cultures.
