Covid 19 Update
The Society of Jewish Ethics has been closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and considers the health and safety of our members, attendees, and the wider community to be our highest priority. In light of the rapid spread of the omicron variant we have decided to shift to a virtual conference for the 2022 conference.
Our conference co-chairs have assembled an exciting and diverse program. In addition to an intellectually stimulating selection of papers, this year’s conference will include an SJE plenary. Dr. Samira Mehta (University of Colorado, Boulder) will deliver an address titled, “Amid the Other Others: Jews and the Navigation of Race in the United States.
Support The Adrienne Asch scholarship, which will be used to help graduate students and others in need of aid to attend the annual SJE conference, allowing them opportunities to meet senior colleagues, present papers, and participate in networks that can further their work and their careers.

The SJE is committed to making the conference financially accessible for those who are giving a paper or want to attend. Help us support students, contingent faculty, and all those without institutional support by donating to the SJE.
