Welcome to the website of HUC-JIR’s Pines School of Graduate Studies (PSGS) Alumni Association. Our association serves as a link between HUC-JIR and the many PSGS alumni. Our graduates are college professors and high school teachers, authors and research scholars, ministers and rabbis, and more. If you graduated recently or long ago, it is our priority to be in touch with you. Please use the links on this website to that end. Each year we raise money for the PSGS, enrich current PSGS students through workshops and the alumni-in-residence program, and participate in the annual luncheon at the national meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature. Please help us to support HUC-JIR and the School of Graduate Studies in order to provide the best possible experience for current students.
