JEWS SURVING IN FOREIGN LANDS
Mondays 4:15 PM to 5:15 PM Starting June 15


We live in a most remarkable time in human history having survived as a Jewish People since the great exodus from Egypt some 3500 years ago.  Volumes have been written on just how that was actually accomplished.  But what is not so well-known is how the remnant lives today scattered throughout the four corners of the globe.  This course will visit the status of Jews in such diverse places as Iran, Yemen, Burma, Japan, China, Ukraine, France, Denmark plus many more.  What have we learned about adapting to new environments, languages and anti-Semitism the last two thousand years? Fee: $50.
