About the AJS Legacy Society

For half a century, the Association for Jewish Studies has been the leading learned society advancing Jewish Studies scholarship and advocating for Jewish Studies scholars, professors, students, and researchers across the globe. To continue this important work, the AJS has established The AJS Legacy Society, a planned giving initiative, and invites members and supporters to include a gift to the AJS in their estate plans. Through The AJS Legacy Society, you may make a gift of any size as part of your legacy.

Learn More about Planned Giving


Your contributions sustain a rich array of AJS programs, resources, and publications and help keep membership dues and conference fees affordable. Your gifts also support new initiatives, such as surveys of the field and data collection, professional development webinars and programs, travel grant opportunities, and onsite childcare at the AJS Conference.
