    Spinoza(Virtual)
    Wednesday, Jul 8th 2:00p to 3:00p
    In 1656, the elders of an Amsterdam Portuguese Jewish synagogue read aloud a writ of ex-communication against Baruch de Spinoza. Spinoza was placed in cherem and formally separated from the Jewish community. Scholars debate whether Spinoza's ideas can therefore be considered the ideas of a Jewish philosopher. But they do not debate his influence on the development of modern Jewish thought. Spinoza declared that the Bible was a work of human authorship, devoid of any sacred or divine meaning and that the Law of Moses was irrelevant. Subsequent Jewish thinkers have had to engage with Spinoza's revolutionary ideas and their meaning for Judaism through the centuries. Meet Spinoza, the first secular Jew, and explore his ideas regarding Judaism, and religion in general, which still reverberate today. (Class will meet for 4 weeks starting July 8th).

    TOPICS IN CONTEMPORARY JEWISH THOUGHT with Sandy Goldberg(Virtual)
    Thursday, Jul 9th 10:00a to 11:00p
    Virtual In this course we will explore various themes in contemporary Jewish thought. These include contemporary approaches to theology, Jewish feminism, Judaism in a multicultural world, conceptions of halacha, the nature of Jewish memory and its relationship to Jewish history, reflections on brokenness, dimensions of Jewish identity, orthodoxy, and the nature and meaning(s) of Torah. We will read short selections from such authors as Jonathan Sacks, Elie Wiesel, Avivah Gottleib Zornberg, Elliot Dorff, Primo Levi, Sharon Brous, Neil Gillman, Blu Greenberg, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Ruth Wisse, David Hartmann, Deborah Lipstadt, Harold Kushner, Joseph Solovecik, Judith Plaskow, Yitz Greenberg, Michael Walzer, and Jonathan Sarna. All selections will be from a wonderful forthcoming book edited by Claire Sufrin and Yehuda Kurtzer (and forthcoming this month from Academic Studies Press), _The New Jewish Canon_. I suggest that everyone order the book (though I will come with copies of our readings if the book is not yet published.)
