    Description:

    Experiencing the Torah is one of the most profound spiritual gifts in Jewish life. We hold the Torah, parade it, hear it chanted, and study it. But chanting from a hand-written scroll is an unparalleled experience. In this class you will learn how to understand ta’amei hamikra— the trope symbols — and chant the Torah. This class is an essential starting point for those interested in adult bar/bat mitzvah. Prerequisite: ability to sound out Hebrew consonants and vowels.

    Where does Judaism come from? What is the relationship between Judaism and the Hebrew Bible (also called the Tanakh or Old Testament)? Who holds power in Judaism, and where does this authority originate? This course explores the origins of Judaism, from the earliest traditions 3,500 years ago up to the dawn of the rabbinic age. Through the study of religious literature and historical evidence, we will seek to understand the foundations of Judaism. This will be lead by Dr. Jason Gaines, Department of Jewish Studies, Tulane Univeristy.
