This course will survey the changes and crises in Jewish history since the
Enlightenment. We will examine the impact of modern intellectual,
political, economic, and social forces on the Jewish people. It is our aim
to come to an understanding of how the Jews interpreted these forces and
how and in what ways they adapted and utilized them to suit the Jewish
experience. Some of the topics to be covered include Emancipation;
Haskalah, new religious movements in modern Judaism, the rise of Jewish
nationalism, Jewish socialism, antisemitism, the Holocaust, and the
emergence of the State of Israel.
