How do we build communities? How do we negotiate difference? How do we respond to change? This course draws on a rich collection of Jewish sources to help us think through three questions central to our experience as humans. By surveying a broad range of sources from the Bible to contemporary films and by considering the experiences of Jews from Baghdad to Berlin, students will become familiar with fundamental aspects of Jewish religion, history, and culture. Through this introduction to Judaism, students will gain resources with which to think through how they personally build communities, negotiate difference, and respond to change.
  Course Description
Survey of Judaism and the rich Jewish legacy: basic philosophical, theological, social, and political values and practices of Judaism as they developed over time in a variety of social and political environments.
