The Holocaust As Reflected in Diaries and Memoirs



Journey into the world of Jewish individuals and communities as the events of the Holocaust unfold around them. Students explore the profound record of first-person accounts in diaries and memoirs uncovered in the years since the Holocaust, and gain remarkable insights into the struggle for life as both young and old writers describe day-to-day life coping in the ghettoes, imprisoned in the death camps, hiding on the run, and fighting for their lives. These are unforgettable images that help us understand the real events of the Holocaust and its legacy for us today.

Jews in America: Insiders and Outsiders



This Scholars course provides students with the opportunity to consider the challenges of Jewish acculturation to American life, and the sacrifices as well as the contributions that have been made over the past 200 years. Lessons will explore such topics as the role of education, the Three Generation Hypothesis, Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, the changing place of Zionism and the State of Israel, the Civil Rights Movement as a case study of distinctiveness and involvement, and other issues that address American and Jewish culture and identity. This 10-lesson course asks the question, “Is the cup half-empty or half full?” as optimists and pessimists debate the future of Jewish identity in America.

Bereshit I: From Adam to Abraham


(10 Lessons)



The stories take us from the universal tales of the creation of the world, the flood, and the Tower of Babel to the foundational tales of Abraham and Sarah, and the beginnings of the Jewish people. The themes of family and faith, honor and dishonor, passion and power provide a rich exploration of our people and ourselves.

Shemot II:  From Revelation to Revolution



Our course follows the development of the emerging Jewish nation from its awe-inspiring encounter at Mount Sinai through the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness.  The high points of divine revelation in "Ten Commandments," "Encountering God," and "Face to Face with God" are sharply contrasted with the low points of the "Golden Calf: Revolt and Reversion." The test addresses some of the specific laws and regulations that were to become part of Jewish living as well as the meaning, purpose, and relevance to our lives today.

Israeli Literature As a Window to Israeli Society




This course of study offers a fresh and fascinating examination of Israeli society since the birth of the State in 1948. Through the pens of its leading writers, participants encounter an Israeli society that is original, contemporary, honest and proud. Reflections of the mythic Israel are matched by poetry and prose that is challenging and self-critical, and both offer profound insight into the Israeli national psyche.
