The Relationship Between Judaism and Islam

Join us on Monday evenings in April and June from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm for ten sessions. This course will explore the intertwined destinies of Judaism and Islam, including the myth of the Jews and Arabs as cousins, the Jewish background to the Islamic religion, and the Muslim-Jewish symbiosis during the medieval period.  Topics will include the influence of Islam on Judaism, the Jewish teachings on Muhammed (570-632), the founder of Islam; the relationship between the five pillars of Islam and Judaism; the Qur'an's attitudes to Jews and Judaism; the status of Jews as "protected minority," the role of the Jews in Islamic societies; the Golden Age of Jewish life in Muslim Spain and more!  You can register at this link: https://register.hebrewcollege.edu/meah-select-temple-beth-shalom/.
