The Torah is an encounter between past and present, between today and eternity that frames Jewish consciousness. Weaving together Jewish tradition with literature and philosophy while studying the Torah, the class will discuss the birth of a nation, politics, society and the principles upon which the Jewish nation was formed. The course will delve into justice, freedom and the rule of law; about the sanctity of life and human dignity. At the heart of the class will be the monumental covenant at Sinai and its implications.
