Led by Dr. Jill Katz (Sociology and Archaeology) our students will once again participate in archaeological excavations at biblical Gath.  We will be part of an international team organized by Bar-Ilan University.

The Leon Charney Fellowship for Archaeological Research is available to YU undergraduate and graduate students on a competitive basis. Fellowships are made possible by the Leon Charney Legacy Fund of the Center for Israel Studies.  Contact Dr. Katz for details.
