Sen. Carl Levin to speak at kick-off of Jewish Studies program February 23

Mark your calendars, folks:  “Senator Carl Levin to speak at EMU’s official kick-off of Jewish Studies program.”  To quote from the EMU web site:

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) will be the guest speaker at the official kick-off for Eastern Michigan University’s new minor in Jewish Studies, Thursday, Feb. 23, 3:15 p.m., in the EMU Student Center Ballroom.

“I can’t be more delighted that Sen. Levin is joining us,” said Martin Shichtman, Jewish Studies program director and professor of English. “The Jewish community has contributed some truly extraordinary participants to Michigan life, such as Sen. Levin.”

And just in case you’re not sure, check out his wikipedia page.  For my money, Levin has the oddest eyewear of anyone in government.  Oh, and I assume this is for LBC credit?

  1. Just thought I’d comment as a reminder here: Go see the Senator this afternoon. You’ll be glad you did!

  2. Thank you, sitedad, for encouraging people to hear Sen. Levin and to celebrate the formal kick-off of the Jewish Studies program. Marty Shichtman has brought in several fantastic speakers over the past year and I look forward to future programs.

  3. And it sounds like a good time was had by one and all, though judging by some of the comments annarbor.com already deleted, it also sounds like the idea of Jewish Studies attracted a few nutjobs:
