Anna M Levia

Assistant Curator, Judaica & Hebraica Collections

I am responsible for selecting new Jewish Studies materials in all media.  This interdisciplinary and multilingual field includes history; literature; linguistics; cultural studies; and contemporary social, political and cultural developments in the United States, Israel and throughout the world.  I also provide reference assistance in these areas of study.   

I also provide reference assistance at the Information Center Desk in Green Library.
