Join Jeremy as he teases out the most important Jewish philosophical ideas of this and the 20th century in his special inimitable style. This is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
All religions have set ideas that they regard as essential. Since the emergence of Greek philosophy these ideas have tended to be expressed as theological truths, dogmas. But in fact they have and are, all understood differently.
This course will examine rationally and mystically, the core ideas of Judaism, from its pre-philosophical origins to the present. It will be a non-judgmental, open minded analysis of the Jewish religious tradition, as an introduction and an illustration of how to make sense and relevance out of the most ancient of world views.
