JS 315 Repairing a Broken World: Jewish Values That Heal
H3: This course investigates the social justice values of the biblical prophets, the Jewish mystical concept of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), and movements such as Zionism and Reform Judaism as responses to the brokenness of the world and as rationales for religiously motivated action. Students will deepen their understanding of theological anthropology. They will also apply these values to today’s world and identify their own rationale for repairing the world. Offered every other year. Cross-listed with THEO 320. Prerequisite: THEO 106.
