Jewish-Christian Relations: A History
With Rabbi Joseph Skloot, Ph.D.
Sundays 9:30 - 11:00am 
March 12, 19, 26

This course will explore the transformations Jewish communities and Judaism underwent after the emergence of Christianity as a world-historical force. We will consider the ways Jews both sought to acculturate (adopt the ideas and practices of the majority) and differentiate themselves. Special emphasis will be placed on the origins of Christianity and rabbinic Judaism; economic interrelationships; anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism; and, Zionism and modern Jewish politics. No previous knowledge is required. 

Rabbi Joseph A. Skloot, Ph.D. is the Rabbi Aaron D. Panken Assistant Professor of Modern Jewish Intellectual History at HUC-JIR/New York. He is an historian of Jewish culture and religious thought, and the author of First Impressions: Sefer Hasidim and Early Modern Hebrew Printing (Brandeis University Press, 2023).
