Description
From the 16th to the 20th centuries, modernity presented unique social and cultural challenges to European Jews considering such issues as personal belief, the meaning of Jewish ritual acts, and the notion of a "chosen people." How did the Enlightenment, political emancipation, nationalism, socialism, and anti-Semitism affect Jewish thinkers of the 18th and 19th centuries and beyond? What were the implications of the Holocaust for the future of the Jewish faith? This course examines these and other issues and the historical figures who grappled with them, including Benedict Spinoza, Moses Mendelssohn, Abraham Geiger, Samson Raphael Hirsch, and many others.

display_descriptionGod, Torah, and Israel. These three concepts (i.e., personal belief, the meaning of Jewish ritual acts, and the purpose of continued Jewish existence) have been the focus of Jewish thought throughout history. But the last four centuries presented Jewish thinkers with difficult challenges. These lectures address the challenges to Jewish intellectual thought in the past 500 years, identifying such challenges and revealing the ways in which a small group of Jewish thinkers attempted to address these challenges.
