See Schedule of Classes for discussion section times
This course is designed to introduce students to the study of
culture as social practice, framed within the context of Jewish
life. Ideas about how people perceive and respond to history will
serve as an important part of our discussion; our focus, however,
will be on how societies bring these ideas of history
and “tradition” together within contemporary activities and on
debates surrounding Judaism in order to lead meaningful lives.
