Discovering Ashkenaz: Jewish Life in Eastern Europe

Over the centuries, despite different languages, religious customs, and geography, the Jewish people have maintained a coherent sense of self. But how has that happened? Many of the answers lie in the story of East European Jewry. In Discovering Ashkenaz, taught by Professor Samuel Kassow,  you will delve into the rich history and culture of the Jews of Poland, Russia, and Lithuania from Medieval times through the Communist Era. Explore Jewish relations with peasants and nobility, compare the rise of both Hasidism and the Jewish Enlightenment, and investigate Yiddish and Hebrew modernism. Co-facilitated by Mike Kuperman and Jim Bunton. Mike Kuperman is a lay leader moderating discussion of the Hebrew Bible and Jewish History for more than 10 years. Jim Bunton is an ordained pastor and leader of Jewish Heart Ministries.
