Max and Tessie Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies 


Carleton University’s Max and Tessie Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies promotes all aspects of the Jewish experience—from ancient times to the present, with a critical focus on the history and contemporary expressions of antisemitism. The Centre is Canada’s “capital” Jewish Studies institute supporting students, teaching and research, and serving as a bridge between the University and the broader community. We are a meeting place for scholars, students, and the public, offering dynamic programming on the historical, social, cultural and religious aspects of Jewish life. Through this mission statement, the ZC truly embraces the strategic direction of the University to “serve Ottawa, serve the world.” 
Occasional volunteers as needed: 
• translation of texts:  to and from Hebrew, French for ZC projects  
• editing / checking for typos in texts: English and French for ZC projects 
• drivers to bring community members to events on campus 
Immediate assistance needed: 
Experienced high school educators willing to look over existing Hear Our Voices online materials (Holocaust educational materials for University students), identify which materials are appropriate for secondary school and develop lesson plans / assignments that could be provided for high school teachers. The HOV materials are available in standalone English and French versions. We would love to develop curriculum materials for both English and French schools, so we are looking for anyone who can work in either language and then we’d translate their curriculum into the other language.  
Immediate assistance needed: 
Cataloguing ZC library using scanning gun. Training is provided. The Library is partially catalogued but must be completed.
