JUDC 1035 - Introduction to Judaism

Description
Introduction to the basic concepts, beliefs and practices of Judaism as expressed through its classic literature. This course integrates an examination of Jewish ritual and practice with an understanding of Jewish history, theology, and text, just as Jewish ritual itself incorporates these elements into Jewish life. Topics covered by the course include the challenges posed by modernity for contemporary Jews, the impact of internal and external forces on Judaism, unity and variety within Judaism, and how to read a Jewish text. Most importantly, the study of Judaism diversifies one's understanding of religion as a category of thought and experience.
