JS 1000 - Introduction to Jewish Studies


Introduces Jewish culture, history and politics. We will examine how the Jewish people and their religion emerged in Biblical times, and how Jewish culture has evolved and flourished for 3,000 years. We will look at the many varieties of “Jewishness,” as well as the impact the Jews have had on their non-Jewish neighbors. Students will learn about largely unrecognized aspects of Jewish culture. From Christianity to communism, from American humor and music, the Jews have bequeathed a rich and diverse heritage to humanity.
