Introduction to Jewish History: Second Temple-1700

Course Developed by Dr. Matt Reingold
Tanenbaum CHAT

Introduction to Jewish History - Part 1 represents the first semester of a full-year exploration of major events in the history of Jewish people. Beginning with the period of the Second Temple. Students will be challenged to weave together Jewish history, so often impacted by outside forces and shaped as a result of these forces. Given the many centuries of rich, complicated Jewish history, this survey course will not cover all aspects of Jewish History. Rather, it will offer students the "big picture" of key themes and events. The course is designed to help students increase their historical literacy and the ability to make meaning from historical events.
