However Judaism is defined, the beliefs, practices, attitudes, and institutions of Jews through the ages display a striking diversity, despite the fact that all would ascribe to a common heritage. Join Professor Gafni for these 12 lectures that explore the ever-changing 4,000-year-old saga of Judaism, one of the world's most ancient and influential religions. Throughout the lectures, you’ll study Judaism from within - as it was understood by its adherents in the past and by those who practice or identify with Judaism today. You’ll cover the critical stages of Jewish history; the centrality of such books as the Torah, Talmud, Midrash, and Mishna; and the manner in which the Jewish calendar and Jewish law, or Halakha, define daily life. You’ll learn how Judaism reinvented itself by embracing the rabbinical tradition after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E. and consider the thinking of such philosophers as Philo of Alexandria and Moses Maimonides. You’ll consider how Judaism deals with converts and other members of the outside world. And you’ll investigate how Judaism manages its dual missions: to be true to itself as a people chosen by God and to be a spiritual example to the world. Rich with historical and spiritual insights, this is your chance to dig deep into the heart of what makes Judaism one of the world’s most important monotheistic faiths
