This course will cover some key, basic concepts in Judaism, including life cycle rituals and the Spring holidays, while looking at multiple perspectives within each topic. This course will allow Jewish students to gain a clearer sense of how they want to personally practice Judaism, as well as expose non-Jewish students to aspects of Judaism that can be incorporated into any person’s life, while giving ALL of the students the opportunity to evolve their own spiritual or religious identity.
Assignments include weekly readings and short reading responses, as well as three out-of-class experiences that relate to Jewish culture or religion (ex: going to Shabbat, visiting the Contemporary Jewish Museum in SF, etc.) that YOU get to choose.
Each week features a new guest speaker so students will get to hear lots of different Jewish voices from the Bay Area.
NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH JUDAISM IS NECESSARY!
