This short course offers you a compiled understanding of the Jewish experience. Everybody interested in the information flow of human history should try to engage with this vital topic. There does not exist such a compilation of facts in a short piece of literature.
The benefit of engagement in this course is opening the eye to the deeper layers of our common history/culture/psyche. Recommended are the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College for advanced learning or Aleph, both in Philadelphia.
It is sure that a new look at old facts can change attitudes towards cultural concepts. Certification/examination/tuition will be organized, if this is the intention of the learner.
The human-centered view of the Jewish experience in world history is a very neglected side of research into the process of human civilization; the presented approach distinguishes between narratives and facts which both flow into the official history and are often intertwined.
Specific books for further reading or discussion are listed at the end of the text; the course will fit the learner who likes to embark into the deeper social psychology of human groups and their world experience. Careful reading is needed to master the density of presented facts and to understand the anthropological differences in humanity as a whole living organism.
