Tenth Grade II: Medieval Jewish Civilization—Tzachie Shalev

In this course we will be investigating the history of Jews and Judaism in the Middle Ages. This entails a look at the political, philosophical, and religious aspects of Jewish life in the face of the two other major monotheistic religious entities: Christianity and Islam. We will begin with a look at Jewish life under Roman Christian rule, then move to the relationship between Jews and Islam, and conclude with a return to Jewish life in Christian Europe.
