Welcome to our online introduction class on Judaism 101. In this course, students will experience the beginnings of Judaism and become familiar with some of the basic beliefs and tenants of one of the largest religions in the world. You'll be introduced to the Synagogue and life customs and traditions such as bris and bar mitzvah. Jewish celebrations and Holy Days are also briefly introduced in order to offer greater understanding of the origination and importance of traditions found within Judaism.
During this course, you'll also be introduced into home life in a Jewish family, as well as the types of foods considered kosher. You'll gain a glimpse into the written and oral laws of Judaism and understand why they're so important to the Jewish people, from rules regarding marriage to how Jewish families grieve the loss of a loved one. Concepts regarding Jewish prayer, beliefs regarding mysticism, and the existence of angels and demons, heaven and hell are also covered.
We'll offer students a brief history of the leaders, prophets and kings of the Jewish people from the time of Abraham to the destruction of the second temple, followed by a review of one of the most tragic periods in human history - the Holocaust. Our basic course into Judaism will conclude with the literal rebirth of the Jewish nation and their continued struggle to maintain a land they can call their home - the modern state of Israel.
We hope this course will interest students into continuing their learning and research of Judaism, in order to encourage tolerance, knowledge and acceptance of religions around the world.
