The vast majority of the world Jewry lived under Muslim rule from the 8th to 12th centuries. In this ten session class, you will explore the religious and cultural connections between Jews and Muslims of that period. The relationship changed Judaism forever – giving rise to new forms of Jewish practice, new elements of Jewish literature, and revolutionary ways of considering age-old philosophical and theological questions. Attend the full course or drop in on individual dates. Dr. Regina Stein is the Morris Kaplan Scholar-in-Residence at the Museum at Eldridge Street. She has taught for Temple Emanu-El's Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning, the Wexner Heritage Foundation, CLAL, the Jewish Theological Seminary, the Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel, the Academy for Jewish Religion, and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. Dr. Stein was formerly the National Director of the Hadassah Leadership Academy.
