The Bennett Center for Judaic Studies is a unique academic center that strives to enrich the intellectual, cultural, and spiritual dialogue of Fairfield University. Continuing the vision of its original sponsors Carl and Dorothy Bennett, the Center fosters learning experiences and campus-wide awareness about Jewish history, ethical values, and religious observances. It also seeks to engage the Greater Fairfield communities through inspiring lectures and annual programs. During her tenure as Director of the Bennett Center (1994-2021), Dr. Ellen M. Umansky was instrumental in creating a large recorded archive of these lectures and performances in addition to signed posters which are now a part of the University Archives. The DiMenna-Nyselius Library is proud to be partnering with the Bennett Center and its generous supporters in the ongoing process of making these valuable collections available to online researchers via the University’s institutional repository DigitalCommons@Fairfield.
