“Fateful Encounter: Relations Between Jews And Muslims in the Medieval and the Modern Islamic World” Fall 2015 with Professor Jacob Meskin

This course is intended to provide both a general overview, and some detailed vignettes, of Jewish life under Islamic rule during the Middle Ages and Modern times.

Analyzing the complex relationship between Jews and Muslims in medieval Islamic societies, in particular, constitutes a fascinating intellectual and spiritual adventure in itself. However, studying the medieval period also turns out to be crucial for gaining a full understanding of relationships between Jews and Muslims in our times today.

Me’ah Select is a dynamic new opportunity for adults of all ages and backgrounds. Our two course offerings for the Fall and Spring semesters explore fascinating themes, texts and personalities, including the relationship between Jews and Muslims beginning in Medieval times.

Fall — “Fateful Encounter: Relations Between Jews And Muslims in the Medieval and the Modern Islamic World” with Professor Jacob Meskin

Spring — “Maimonides: Speaking to Us Across the Ages” with Professor Reuven Cohn

These courses consist of 10 sessions per semester, and will be facilitated by two exceptional teachers from the Greater Boston Academic Community.

Please note: Me’ah Classic is not a prerequisite. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required. All are welcome!
