What's in a name? What names do you know of for the collective Jewish people, and what do they suggest about the Jewish people's mission and character? What can the original Hebrew word for Jews, Yehudim, teach us about the values Jews are meant to hold dear?
Do All Lives Matter, or just Jewish Lives? What demands does having privilege make on us as we relate to others? In this class, we will mine through biblical and rabbinic texts that deal with the tension between loyalty to fellow Jews and commitment to the well-being of those outside of our religious communities. Though the class will not be political in nature, participants are encouraged to consider how the sources we learn may be relevant in light of current events.
