About the Jewish Baccalaureate Ceremony:

Jewish Life at Duke is excited to host the 41th annual Jewish Baccalaureate Ceremony for graduating Jewish seniors and their families at the Freeman Center this spring on May 10, 2024. Remarks by Jewish Life at Duke leadership and students, a keynote speech, blessings, and presentation of gifts are included. As our graduates prepare to embark on their next chapter, we look forward to celebrating their time at Duke and their many contributions to our Jewish community. Class of 2024 students, families, and friends, and members of the Duke community, can RSVP here. The first Jewish Baccalaureate at Duke started as a walk-out protest by a handful of Duke seniors in 1983. Forty-one years later, it ha transformed into an annual ceremony to recognize and celebrate the contribution of graduating students to Duke’s Jewish community, taking place in the home for Jewish Life at Duke, the Freeman Center. Read the whole story here.
