Introduction to the Jewish Experience: Traditions of Judaism (Online-only class)
This is an online-only class. If you cannot attend in-person sessions at Temple Sinai on Wednesday evenings, join us online on Sunday afternoons from 3:30 - 5 Pacific Time (6:30 - 8pm Eastern Time.) Students will need access to a computer and the Internet. No special software is required.
There have been multiple expressions of Judaism since the days of the Second Temple. In this class we will study the varieties of Judaism: Ashkenazi Judaism, Sephardic Judaism, and the modern streams of Judaism. We will also look at some of the elements that make American Judaism distinctive. The class will also explore the phenomenon of antisemitism from ancient times to today.
This class is part of a three-unit series. See the full series here.
