July 17 - July 20

July 17-20, 2023
23rd Annual
Greenfield Summer Institute

“Jews and Leisure”

From weekly Shabbat to vacations in the Catskills, Jewish leisure takes distinctive forms. Treat yourself to this year’s Greenfield Summer Institute for four days of learning and socializing on the UW-Madison campus. Join us as distinguished scholars from across fields explore Algerian villas, Sephardic barbeques, European taverns and cafés, New York City dance halls, Florida beaches, and of course, mahjong, to consider the many ways that Jews have rested, relaxed, reconnected, and restored their spirits. You can view the full schedule of events here.


As in past years, the Institute will take place in the comfortable setting of Grainger Hall, home of the UW School of Business. For anyone unable to travel to Madison, the Institute will also be livestreamed, via Zoom. See the registration page for more information about this option.
