A Guide to Jewish Eschatology

Mondays, Jan 8, 15, 22 and Feb 5 at 7:00 pm on Zoom

Instructor:  Professor Daniel Rynhold

The idea of the afterlife looms large in many religious traditions. But what does Judaism actually have to say about what happens next, whether personally or more generally in "history"? In this course we will look at a selection of medieval and modern ideas on these issues that range from the supernatural to the natural, taking in the views of such thinkers as Saadia Gaon, Maimonides, and Spinoza

Professor Daniel Rynhold is Dean at the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University in New York City where he has worked since August 2007. He became the Shoshana Shier Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Toronto's Centre for Jewish Studies in 2019.

Lunch & Learn with Cantor Isaac Yager
Thursdays ongoing, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm in Person and on Zoom

Join us for lunch on Thursdays as we discuss, learn, and engage in Jewish textual study, specifically the Parashat Hashavuah (weekly Torah reading). Following in the footsteps of the generations that preceded us, we will continue the long legacy of commenting and intellectually dissecting Jewish texts from the Torah, the book of Prophets, and other holy texts. Questions will be encouraged and debate is inevitable. This will be an inclusive, non judgmental learning environment where everyone's voice will have equal value. No prior text study is required. All are welcome to attend and participate.
