Tauber Jewish Studies Electives

Indulge your appetite for a taste of Jewish culture, history, and the arts with one of our bite-sized electives. These classes are taught by our clergy or guest lecturers and meet approximately six times over the course of a trimester.

The Golden Age Of Spain and its Influence on Contemporary Jewish Life

One of the most exciting chapters in Jewish history is marked by Muslim sovereignty in Spain—an era that lasted over 700 years. We are excited to offer a fall, winter and spring elective devoted to this fascinating time in our history. A trip to Spain to round out this experience is also in discussion!

Thursdays, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Following up on the first two trimesters of this popular course, we will indulge in a sweet taste of the cultural richness of the Golden Age. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear about the thriving arts and cultural scene during this fascinating time in our history. Students currently enrolled in the winter trimester must register separately for spring and new students are welcome to join for this trimester.
