This is your opportunity to explore classic Jewish sources, investigate issues of Jewish thought, practice and ethics, and advance your knowledge of Jewish history. This year’s curriculum consists of two classes: Dramas of Jewish Living and Ethics of Jewish Living. The Dramas course looks at the dramatic developments, experiences and issues from different periods in Jewish history, as reflected in historical texts. The Ethics course addresses the relationship between Jewish life and ethical behavior. It presents a text-based approach to Jewish ethical foundations dealing with issues such as justice, life and death, sexuality and community.
