How did Jewish individuals in widely separated and quite different communities experience the challenges and changes of modernity? How did these experiences, and the feelings they evoked, shape new Jewish hopes and projects? Taught by instructor Dr. Jacob Meskin.

This course uses Jewish short stories, from the late 19th century through contemporary times from England, Russia, Eastern Europe, Israel and America to give us unique insights into generational struggles, changing gender roles and the search for “authentic Judaism” outside the precincts of religion.

This 10-week course will meet weekly on Wednesdays from Oct. 30 to Jan. 22 (except for holidays).
