Exploring a Forgotten World: A Social History of Medieval Jewry as Revealed in the Cairo Genizah

This course will reveal how a collection of worn-out scraps, fragments of texts and other manuscripts and documents found more than 1,000 years old open an otherwise hidden era of history.  We will learn the story of the Genizah (a storeroom for timeworn sacred manuscripts and documents) as well as examine selected contents of the Genizah.  Through translations of the original texts, the course will explore the daily lives and behaviors of Jewish men, women and families living along the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages.  

Day:  Mondays beginning on November 9, 2020 - February 1, 2021

Time:  1:00 pm - 2:30 pm via Zoom

Vayikra (Leviticus): A Call to Holiness

Chosen by the rabbinic sages as the first book to initiate children to Bible learning, contemporary readers often perceived Vayikra as inaccessible.  Yet, embedded in the laws that focus on the prescribed sacrificial practices, laws of ritual impurity and purity, and the pursuit of holiness are messages and values that have relevance to the universal condition.  In our study of Vayikra, we will examine themes including the role of rituals, responding to tragedy, confronting birth and parenthood, seeking forgiveness, balancing the place of the individual and the community, bringing sanctity into one's daily life, and more.  Through a textual study of selected passages, this course uncovers the depth and wisdom of the third book of the Torah and reveals its enduring messages that touch our lives to this very day.  

Day:  Tuesdays beginning on November 10, 2020 - February 2, 2021

Jewish Medical Ethics: A 21st Century Discussion
  
Within the field of ethics, one of the most challenging frontiers is medical ethics. While contemporary medical knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical issues related to the sanctity and dignity of life - issues whose scope was unimaginable a generation ago.  This course on Jewish Medical Ethics explores Jewish approaches to a number of challenging dilemmas including human cloning, surrogate motherhood, assisted suicide and genetic manipulation.  

Day:  Mondays beginning on November 9, 2020 - February 1, 2021

Time:  10:00 am - 11:30 am via Zoom
