The Carolyn L. Drucker '80 Memorial Prize

Through the generosity of the Drucker family, the Program is able to offer an annual prize for the best senior thesis related to Judaic Studies (broadly defined).  Before the establishment of the Program, the prize was offered under the auspices of the Committee for Jewish Studies, the Program's predecessor.

The 2022 Drucker Prize was awarded to Naomi Shifrin, Department of Sociology, for “Collective Trauma, Identity, and Healing: An Ethnography of Neo-Hasidic Jews in English-Speaking Jerusalem.” 

For more information about the Drucker Prize, please contact the program.
