Jewish History and Culture II: Revolt to Revolution
Rabbi Jamie Cowen
Part of the Shaliach Level
In this second of three surveys on Jewish History and Culture, the learner will examine the roots of separation between the Jewish and Christian communities, the roots of anti-Semitism, and the role of the historical Church in perpetuating crimes against the Jewish people. This course will introduce the impact of Islam, the Church Fathers, the Crusades, the accusations of the church against the Jews in the Inquisition, the Kabbalah and Hasidism, as well as other topics, as they relate to the Sephardic and Ashkenazic Experience.
