KASHRUT – WHAT AND WHY?
Kashrut – the Jewish dietary laws, are as central to Jewish practice and identity as Shabbat is. How these laws function, and what they might really represent will be the ultimate focus of this course. We will examine the fundamentals of kashrut to gain an understanding of the values they represent, discover how and why the Rabbis have extended these laws, and how they change to respond to the challenges of varying contexts.
The course is given in English, in collaboration with Paideia – the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden.
To apply for this course, you need basic computer skills and knowledge of how to use the digital platform Zoom. The school offers Zoom manuals and a training opportunity before the start of the course.
No prior knowledge about the subject is needed.
Course material is included in the course cost.
