Former Jewish Studies Lecturer Anat Balint Heads Program at San Jose State

Friday, September 04, 2020

J. (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Right now, the SJSU campus is closed due to the pandemic and all classes are being conducted online, starting this week. That saves Balint, who lives in San Francisco, a long commute, but after teaching at San Francisco State University and then at SJSU over the past two years, she still loves sharing her knowledge with her students.

“Students know very little about the place I’m coming from,” she said of her native land. “They’re open to listening. I try to give them a broad perspective.”
