Judaism’s Gifts to the World is an in-depth exploration of the most notable values and attitudes that the Jews have successfully shared with humanity. Once considered preposterous, many of Judaism’s revolutionary teachings are today’s universal values that are taken for granted. The history of the gradual transition of attitudes on values is as instructive as it is fascinating. An analysis of Jewish contributions past and present allows us to define ways in which Judaism can continue serving as a beacon of light and wisdom for all humanity.
This six-week course is chock full of rich history presented lecture-style, with lively class discussion. It’s for Jews of any affiliation or none at all–if you view the world through a Jewish lens of any kind, you’ll find this course meaningful.
