Peoplehood and Its Role and Significance in Jewish Life
Senior Hartman Institute faculty members delve into the idea of Jewish Peoplehood - its complex origins, its implications and how it might be sustained. An issue of wide concern in the Jewish community today, the concept of a “Jewish collective” appears at odds with a contemporary ethos of intense individualism.
This video lecture series presents a broad and deep analysis of some of the tensions that Peoplehood raises in classical Jewish tradition and contemporary Jewish thought and life.
The Lecture Series and accompanying curricular study materials are designed to be used by a rabbi or educator with a group of lay leaders in a weekly or monthly study program. The rabbi/educator serves as the lead teacher, utilizing the materials and lectures as best suited for his/her community, preparing the participants for the lecture by studying the texts and reading the supplementary materials in advance, either in a separate session, or in a shorter 45-minute preparatory session.
The Peoplehood Video Lecture Series includes nine curricular units containing video lectures on DVD and USB, Source Book including all texts referenced in the lectures, plus additional supplementary sources and recommended background readings. The package includes one book for the leader; additional books for participants may be purchased for $20 each including shipping. Leader’s Guide: Lecture summaries, suggested questions for guiding hevruta study and group discussion, supplementary source descriptions, and advice on structuring and teaching the course.
