Career[edit]

Endelman was awarded a B.A. in 1968 from the University of California, Berkeley, and his Ph.D. in 1976 at Harvard University.

He taught at Yeshiva University and Indiana University, then moved to Michigan in 1985. While at the University of Michigan, Endelman served as director of the Jean & Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies intermittently for 11 years. During his tenure as director, there was a significant growth for the program, including the creation of a Masters program and the establishment of the Frankel Institute for Advanced Judaic Studies with a $20 million endowment. At the time, it was the largest gift ever given to a Jewish Studies program.

He was succeeded as director by fellow historian, Deborah Dash Moore in 2005. Endelman will serve as the Frankel Institutes's Head Fellow for the 2008–09 academic year.
