PAS Graduate Course
Contemporary Issues in Jewish Life and the Making of Jewish Identity
Thu / Begins Oct 15 / 9:15 am
Dr. David Kaufman
Explore the intersection of the complex issues we face as modern Jews and the myriad ways we experience Jewishness in the context of contemporary America. We will focus on five principal issues of Jewish life today: religion, culture, community, Israel, and anti-Semitism. Each subject will be covered in two classes apiece, but the unifying thread of the class will be the ever-fascinating subject of modern Jewish identity – yours, mine, and ours.
