<x-charset iso-8859-1>Hello all,
Madelon in Berlin writing.
(Please note: the following request does indeed have a tie-in to Czernowitz and the Bukowina - please bear with me a few sentences).
Dr. Eric Jacobson, Asst. Dir. of the Center for German-Jewish Studies at the University of Sussex in England, has asked me to look for donors - both private and institutional - for the September 11 Fellowship. The fellowship is to enable gifted students from overseas to pursue the MA and PhD program Critical Religious Studies.
The course work goes through Jewish European history starting with the Haskala,Hassidism, Messianism, early and 20th Century scoloarship and the Jewish-German symbiosis of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Needless to say, I will be one of the recipients of this fellowship, and will not be able to begin studies this October without it. It is a tax-deductible, non-profit structure.
I am not soliciting donations from you. Rather, I am asking if you would recommend and suggest to me any other institutions you may know or be connected to, who would have an interest in endowing an advanced studies program aimed at intellectual tolerance of all world faiths.
I've tried to keep this as short as possible. Please know that I appreciate your time and attention and I hope to hear from you.
Best regards to all,
