Jewish Studies Sampler Sunday, October 7

Sunday, October 7, 2PM

Join the adult education committee one Sunday each month to sample Great Courses lectures or online courses focused on Jewish Studies.

We will have eight Sunday afternoon sessions this year, snacks provided. Usually, we will experience two thirty-minute lectures with time for conversation after each one.

Here is the outline of courses you can sample this year:

  1. Jewish Intellectual History: 16th to 20th Century
  2. Beginnings of Judaism
  3. Biblical Wisdom Literature (for example, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs)
  4. The Dead Sea Scrolls
  5. Jesus and His Jewish Influences

Why sampler? Because each of these courses is considerably longer than two lectures, varying from 24 to 48 lectures. You can attend the one or two Sundays devoted to an introduction to the course and decide if you would like to pursue the whole course at another time. The adult education committee will facilitate whole course gatherings if enough folks want to follow through with them.
