Introduction to Judaism (2016)

intro to Judaism flyer

Just out of my introduction to Judaism, which I teach every fall semester. I tried something new this year after working through the what-is-Judaism-religion-or-culture exercise. I’m not sure why I ever did it this way. Maybe today I was just tired of listening to my own voice. I simply asked them what they expected and/or wanted from the class. They weren’t after doxa and norms. In their words, they want “depth,” “nuance,” “variation,” “interpretation,” and “independent thinking.”
