Introduction to Jewish Social Thought

Introductory Course

All ancient societies thought in corporate terms, but the Bible introduced the notion of a Divine covenant, which greatly affected the development of Western politics, culture and economics. This course will examine how the Greek “polis” clashed with the Jewish notion of the family, and how Jewish imperatives led to the Christian understanding that human dignity and freedom are absolutely essential to a good society.
