Me’ah Select: The Islamic Perspective on Jews and Judaism

February 7, 2017 Acton $335.00

Registration is now open for Me’ah Select class at Congregation Beth Elohim in Acton. The class is taught by Dr. Shari Lowin.

Much of what we know today about how Islam views Jews and Judaism comes from news sources reporting from areas of conflict. But what does Islam really have to say about Jews? And about Judaism? This 10 session course will present students with a more in depth discussion of and analysis of materials relevant to this issue. We will look at the attitude of the Qur’an to Jews and Judaism; the portrayal of Jews in the classical and later Islamic sources; the relationship between Muslim and Jewish exegetical materials; the relationship between Muhammad and the Jews of Medina; medieval polemics against Jews; legal rulings on Jews and Judaism from the classical period to the Spanish period and in the Ottoman Empire; Salafi statements regarding Jews; and other such topics.
