Introduction to the Jewish Experience: Israel and Texts (Online only)

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2017.

This is an online-only class. If you cannot attend in-person sessions at Beth El 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.

The land of Israel has been central to Jewish history, both ancient and modern. This class will examine the history ancient Israel, the beginnings of rabbinic Judaism, and the modern return to the land. With that history as a backdrop, we will learn about the great texts of Judaism, including the synagogue service.

This class is part of a three-unit series. See the full series here.
