We will study sacred texts such as the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud, learn about classical Jewish rituals and methods of prayer, and explore contemplative approaches to the Hebrew calendar and the holiday cycle. Our exploration of these topics is approached with an eye toward understanding how these teachings and practices are engaged as a spiritual path. Prerequisite: COR110. Cross-listed as REL 529.
