Jerusalem is an enigma: An eternal Jewish capital that isn't mentioned in the Torah. A holy place for Jews, Christians, and Muslims that wasn't built by any of them. A real, live, bustling city, but also a powerful symbol - whose meaning has shifted over and over through the ages.

This 4-week long series is more than a history lesson. We'll explore the story of Jerusalem as a place AND an idea. Its bizarre origins; how it              became the Israelite capital; its role in Rabbinic stories, in Jewish prayer and poetry, and in visions of early Zionist leaders; its meaning in today‚Äôs      complicated Middle East. From ancient stones to modern dreams: the inspiring, surprising story of the holiest city.

Class meets November 30, December 7, 14, and 21st at 12PM in the Lake Library and via Zoom.
