The Harry and Sylvia Rosen Memorial Symposia

Sylvia Rosen, with the support of Merle and Philip Koven, Harvey Rosen and Sharon Monson, and Merrill and Wayne Rosen, has endowed a permanent symposium, seminar, and conference series in Jewish Studies at Queen's University. The purpose of these programs is to stimulate a greater awareness for Jewish Studies at Queen's and in the Kingston community, its role in the arts and sciences, and its relationship with general cultural developments.
