JST 525 - Jews in the Contemporary World

This course will survey Jewish life in the contemporary world since about 2010. Topics will include American Jewish demography, synagogue movements, and culture; Israeli Jewish society, culture, and politics; and a survey of Diaspora Jewish communities outside of the United States. Attention will be paid to changes such as the impact of new technologies, the growth of non-Ashkenazic Jewish communities, the growth of Haredi Orthodoxy, and the rise of mixed Jewish/non-Jewish families.
