Introduction to the Jewish Experience: Traditions of Judaism (Winter 2021)

Judaism comes in many flavors, and yet we also have powerful essentials in common. In this term of Introduction to the Jewish Experience, we explore Jewish diversity and the aspects that we share. We will learn about the institutions of Shabbat, synagogue, and the services. We will also examine the diverse heritages of Judaism: Sephardic, Ashkenazi, and Mizrahi, North American Judaism, and Judaism in Israel. We will finish with a look at Jews & Food, a topic which includes both diversity and our common inheritance.

This is one part of a three-term course. The terms may be taken in any order, and each also functions as a stand-alone learning experience. Intro to the Jewish Experience consists of “Jewish Holidays and Life Cycle,” “Israel & Texts” and “Traditions of Judaism.”
