Sen. Carl Levin will introduce a Jewish studies minor during a speech at Eastern Michigan University's Student Center Ballroom at 3:30 p.m Thursday.
Program Director Martin Shichtman said EMU intends to "be a voice for Jewish culture in southeast Michigan." The program began with online courses in fall 2011.
Levin, a Detroit native with a Jewish background, has served in the U.S. Senate since 1978, and is chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.
Eastern Michigan's Student Center is located at 900 Oakwood, in Ypsilanti. The program is free and open to the public.
