What could be simpler than a single people worshipping a single God for 3,000 years? But Judaism is far from simple, and as a religion, culture, and civilization, it has evolved in surprising ways during its long and remarkable history. Consider the following: Although Judaism is defined by its worship of one God, it was not always a pure monotheism. In I Kings 8, King Solomon addresses the Lord by saying, "there is no God like You," suggesting that the Israelites recognized the existence of other gods. The practice of Judaism was focused on animal sacrifice until the destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans in the first century, which forced a radically new approach to worship. The political emancipation of the Jews in 18th-century Europe transformed a thousand-year-old style of Jewish life. "You can’t find an expression of Judaism today that is just like Jews lived 300 years ago," says Professor Shai Cherry. Yet for all it has changed, Judaism has maintained unbroken ties to a foundation text, an ethnicity, a set of rituals and holidays, and a land. In these 24 lectures, Professor Cherry explores the rich religious heritage of Judaism from biblical times to today. He introduces you to the written Torah, and you learn about the oral Torah, called the Mishnah (which was also later written down), and its commentary, the Gemara. And you discover how the Mishnah and Gemara comprise the Talmud, and how they differ from another form of commentary called Midrash. ======= Course Lecture Titles: Torah, Old Testament, and Hebrew Bible From Israelite to Jew Repentance Study Prayer Deeds of Loving Kindness Messianism The Coming World Sabbath Law and Spirit Fall Holidays Spring Holidays Minor Holidays—Then and Now Medieval Jewish Philosophy—Maimonides Medieval Jewish Mysticism—Kabbalah Evil and Suffering—Biblical and Rabbinic Evil and Suffering—Medieval and Modern Emancipation, Enlightenment, and Reform Orthodox Judaisms Israel and Zionism American Judaisms Women and Jewish Law Judaism and the Other The Chosen People?
