From the Bible to Bar Kokhba: 2nd Temple Judaism and its Aftermath
Join me at the Soloway Jewish Community Centre Adult Education program from April 26- May 31 2018, Thursdays from 10:00-11:30am.  Registration info available here.
Who is a Jew?  Is Judaism an ethnicity, a nationality, a religion?  How much assimilation is too much? We think of these as modern questions, but they have been explored since the very beginning of Jewish history.  This course will look at the development of Judaism during the Persian, Greek, and Roman periods – from the Bible to Bar Kokhba – to understand the diverse responses of a variety of early Jewish communities concerning the boundaries of their identity.
 Please note: This class will be available for online streaming! If you can’t make it to the class, you can still register and access videos of the lectures remotely at your convenience.  Contact me for more information.
