The Solomon-Tenenbaum Visiting Lectureship in Jewish Studies is presented annually to the University of South Carolina faculty and students and the larger community. The University proudly acknowledges the benefactors, Melvin and Judith Solomon, of Charleston, and Samuel and Inez Tenenbaum, of Columbia, whose generosity has created a Jewish studies endowment which exists to support the lectureship, to enhance the library collection and, eventually, to establish a chair of Jewish studies.
Others are invited to make gifts to enlarge the Jewish studies endowment. These gifts provide academic resources to study the Jewish experience from its beginnings to the present.
The Solomon-Tenenbaum lectureship continues the Tenenbaum Visiting Lectureship in Judaic Studies which began in 1990. The Tenenbaum lectureship was given in memory of Samuel's father, Meyer Warren Tenenbaum, and his mother, LaBelle Florence Tenenbaum.
