“Diaspora/Galut: At Home Abroad in Jewish Tradition,” is a six-session course presented by Dr. David C. Kraemer, the Joseph J. and Dora Abbell Librarian and Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics. Jewish historiography has often emphasized the centrality of the hope to return to Zion as a linchpin in Jewish ideology and history. But Jews have, for most of our existence, lived in diaspora, and we have developed robust ideologies of diaspora, ones that have seen our abodes “away from home” as genuine homes, and even as “Zions.” Tuition is $325 for members of OZ and $350 for nonmembers. This reading-intensive seminar is designed for graduates of the Me’ah or Context two-year program or for those with similar Jewish learning backgrounds.
