Course Overview

Lesson 1:  The Eternal People

By taking another look at the statistics, studying our people's remarkable perseverance, and exploring the concept of providence, we can find eternal cause for confidence and optimism while we implement plans to secure ourselves and our communities.

Lesson 2:   No Apologies

We look at some of the explanations for antisemitism that have been offered throughout the ages to emerge with an important principle: the problem with hating Jews lies not with the Jews but with the haters. Internalizing this hate is not a healthy response.

Lesson 3:  The Promised Land

Today, hatred of Jews commonly manifests itself as antagonism toward the Jewish State. This class distinguishes all-out antisemitism from some more nuanced substrains. It also examines the state of Israel education and the very nature of Jewish nationhood. 

Lesson 4: Change of Heart

Psychology, neuroscience, and recent history show us that neither friend nor foe should ever be taken for granted. With a bit of subtlety and conviction, and always with trust in G‑d, we find that the dark days of the past are no cause for pessimism.
