RELS 1287 - Modern Judaism
Studies the ways in which Judaism has changed in modern times. How did this ancient religion respond to the Enlightenment? How did the freedom of religion granted to Jews in America affect their religious expression? What does the birth of the State of Israel in 1948 mean in religious terms? The course addresses all of these questions as well as examining the rise of denominations, Zionism, Jewish feminism, and changing notions of Jewish peoplehood. Emphasizes the ways in which developments within Judaism reflected and responded to changes in the larger world and overlapped with developments in other Western religions.
