REL 22 Modern Judaism

This course will trace the ways Jews in modernity made sense, challenged, adopted, and adapted modern thought, culture, and politics in their recalibration of Judaism. The role Jews played in modernity in well-known. But how did Jews re-think Judaism in ways that enabled it and them both to survive the challenges of modernity and also retain a sense of difference enough to enable Jews to assimilate yet not disappear. In this course we will look at some of the major trends and thinkers from the 17th through the 21st centuries as they struggled to reinterpret Judaism for the modern age. Open to all classes.
