Bereshit (Genesis) Part I:

From Adam to Abraham: The First 20 Generations

The stories take us from the universal tales of the creation of the world, the flood, and the Tower of

Babel to the foundational tales of Abraham and Sarah, and the beginnings of the Jewish people.

The themes of family and faith, honor and dishonor, passion and power provide a rich exploration of

our people and ourselves.

Bereshit (Genesis) Part II: The Story of the First Jewish Family

This course follows the development of the first Jewish family, from ?The Birth of Two Nations? and

?Stolen Blessings? to ?Reunion in Egypt? and ?Blessing the Grandchildren.? These stories of sibling

rivalry, wrestling with an angel, palace seduction, rape, and reconciliation provide some of the most

dramatic and iconic images that reverberate across the millennia.

Beyond Borders, The Arab Israeli Conflict

This course provides students with a strong, text-based historical overview from the late nineteenth

century through today. The complexity of the conflict forces students to grapple with issues of

religion, culture, history, politics, economics, identity and survival?all reflected through primary

sources, including newspaper articles, poetry, songs, government documents, speeches,

photographs and memoir.
