Event description

Description

From the 8th to the 12th centuries, the vast majority of world Jewry lived under Muslim rule. The relationship changed Judaism forever – giving rise to new forms of Jewish practice, new genres of Jewish literature, and revolutionary ways of considering age-old philosophical and theological questions. In these ten sessions, explore the religious and cultural connections between Jews and Muslims of that period. This course is a continuation of our exploration of Jews and Muslims in history, but new participants are welcome!

Dr. Regina Stein is the Morris Kaplan Scholar-in-Residence at the Museum at Eldridge Street. She has taught for Temple Emanu-El’s Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning, the Wexner Heritage Foundation, CLAL, the Jewish Theological Seminary, the Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel, the Academy for Jewish Religion, and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. Dr. Stein was formerly the National Director of the Hadassah Leadership Academy.
