Teaching in and Across Religious Traditions, Winter 2014
This course will explore and practice the art and craft of teaching in the Jewish and Christian traditions. The course will focus on common issues shared by the two traditions but approached in particularistic ways: the teaching of Bible and the Prophets, teaching Social responsibility and tzedaka and cultivating ritual practices and observance of a religious tradition. It also inductively explores what is being learned from interfaith encounters and ministries regarding religious identity and openness to one’s neighbors as a religious educator. Limit: 12 ANTS and 12 Hebrew College students.
Winter - Winter Session 1 – January 13-16, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.; January 17, 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.; additional session Jan. 15, 6-8 p.m.
