By Bryan Caplan National Review / August 19, 2019 06:30:04A Baruch Hebrew major, with a concentration in Modern and Classical Studies, has the opportunity to become an American-born major, the first American to do so.
I wrote a blog post last year titled The Jewish Yearbook: What You Should Know About American Jewish History and Culture.
I’ve published my article and my blog post on Baruch in the Jewish Yearbooks of the United States, Israel, and Palestine.
This past year, the Baruch major, who is from Israel, completed an American Studies major with a focus in Modernist Theory.
The major is now taking his major at a liberal arts college in California.
