HBRJD-UA 695 Jewish Politics, Jewish Power
Tuesday and Thursday 11:00am – 1:45pm with Professor Elisha Russ-Fishbane
What has Judaism to do with politics? Is there such a thing as Jewish politics before the establishment of the modern State of Israel? This course will take a close look at the history of Jewish political thought and the implementation of Jewish power, both in the past and in the present. We will begin with an overview of the current debate over Jewish power and powerlessness and examine some of the modern myths of Jewish power that are still with us today.
