Many of our students have inquired about the anthropology of the Jewish People.  Who are they?  Where did they come from? Where did they locate? Who were the Jews of yesteryear and who are they today?  This class will study the unique phenomenon of Jewish existence, survival and contributions to humanity—in the past as well as in the near term.  Drawing on print media materials that will be distributed in class, students will have an opportunity to analyze the unique character of the Jewish people in the many venues they have occupied.  Belonging to a people is great for identification, but studying Jewish civilization will help one better understand just exactly where the Jews stand today.  Instructor: Marden Paru; Fee $60.
