JPH 120

Course Description

Chabad Chassidus outlines various themes and motifs for each Jewish holiday and for each time period within the Jewish year. In this course, we explore the Chassidic emphasis on living with the spiritual dynamics that are currently in play, as well as “living with the times” as expressed in the relevant Torah portion of the week.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the Chassidic approach to the following: the month of Elul, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkos and Simchas Torah and Chanuka as well as select sections of Beraishis and Shemos.

  • Create one mini-project that expresses one of the themes explored in class through an artistic medium.
