THEO 5349 Israel in Jewish Theologies (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Israel, both the people and the land, are central to Jewish theology as concrete manifestations of God’s covenants. This course will explore the evolving meanings of these concepts from the Bible to today, looking at themes like peoplehood, life in the land, exile from it, and (messianic) return. The second part of the course will focus specifically on the theologies of a range of modern Jewish thinkers, with the goal of helping students to understand aspects of contemporary Israel and its meaning to world Jewry.
