JWST 34.05 Jewish Folklore

What makes stories and songs necessary to our identity, dignity, and spirituality? This course attempts to answer these questions through the study of Jewish folklore. We’ll focus mostly on stories and songs, but also address bordering genres (riddles, proverbs, folk drama). Along with studying Jewish folklore, we will experience it by singing songs and enacting a folk-play.  This dual approach stems from the backgrounds of the co-teachers, one a scholar, the other a Grammy-nominated songwriter.
