JS 180gp: Judaism

This class explores Judaism and the different contexts in and out of which Jewish experience and practice developed by looking comparatively at historical, political and cultural environments. Students will study the diversity in contemporary Jewry and examine the engagement of Judaism with other faith traditions. The course looks at the sources of Judaism in relationship with other concurrent religions and civilizations and investigates political, economic and religious climates with which Jews and Judaism were in conversation. It encourages students to develop a thoughtful understanding of the creative and interpretive development of one of the world’s oldest religions.
