Great Jewish Ideas
In an age of fluid identity, many people are honestly asking the question “Why be Jewish?” What in this religious and ethnic legacy is worth preserving? Does Judaism have something unique to offer a contemporary seeker free to choose a way of life and a system of values?
This course will help provide answers to these important questions. Together, we will examine some of the greatest ideas that have characterized Judaism and the Jewish people since their inceptions, challenging us each along the way to consider our own Jewish identities and the ideas that we stand for in our own lives.
The course meets every other Thursday from September 15, 2016 to January 5, 2017 (8:00 to 9:00 pm).
