More Jewish Experience: The Books of Joshua and Judges
These two books of the Jewish Bible are sometimes referred to as "histories," but they are not history in the modern sense of the word. They are dramatic narratives that pose a very modern question: when we get what we thought we wanted, what's next? Who will we be when our dreams come true?
We will study the books in English translation, no Hebrew required. Bring a Jewish Bible (Tanakh) with you to the first class.

Rabbi Ruth Adar loves teaching "Intro," partly because she was once an Intro student herself.

She holds an M.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Tennessee. She recently published an article in Reform Jewish Quarterly, "Ethical Priorities in Giving Tzedakah."
