Unit of study_

Jews and Judaism in the 'New World' - JCTC4114

Year - 2019

In this unit the students will examine the history and transformation of Judaism and Jewish identity in the 'New World', the countries that would receive significant Jewish migrations from often longstanding European communities. Students will trace in detail the major patterns of migration, assimilation, acculturation and nationalism that have marked the modern Jewish experience and in particular communities that moved from periphery to centre as a result of the seismic shifts generated by the Holocaust and the creation of the modern State of Israel.
