Consider some of the most pressing political and social issues of the day through a Jewish lens. In-depth study of ancient and modern Jewish sources, combined with a consideration of the current American discourse, will lead you to a better understanding of Jewish perspectives on key contemporary issues. This semester, focus on issues of immigration, employer-employee relationships, and health care. Sessions will consist of small-group study of ancient through contemporary texts, as well as full-group discussions in which we attempt to develop collective understandings of Jewish approaches to contemporary issues. All texts will be provided in both the original language and in English translation; all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome.
