YOUR SUPPORT IS WELCOME AND NEEDED: BUT WHY THE 18s?

18 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word “life,” and it is customary to donate in multiples of 18. It’s a toast to life (l’hayim) and a harmless bit of folk belief. (It’s also a good way of keeping tabs on charitable donations – when the Police Benevolent League says you gave $36 last year (not $35) you can believe them.) The following are some of your favorite JUST events and what they cost.

Please let us acknowledge your support in our next newsletter:

  • $18 Show Your Support of Judaic Studies at OU
  • $36 Sponsor a JUST Lunch Event
  • $54 Buy A Movie
  • $360 Sponsor a student’s travel to a conference
  • $1,800 Be Honorary Host for an Invited Speaker
  • $3,600 Sponsor next year’s JUST Newsletter
  • $18,000 Sponsor a Graduate Student for a 2-year Degree in History/Judaic Studies

Please go here to donate to the center.
