Thirty-Six righteous Students now studying the history of Ashkenaz!

Hello students of Jewish history! I am very pleased to let you know that we now have a very auspicious number of students in this new experimental online course, A Thousand Years of Ashkenaz. I know some of them from earlier interactions on YouTube and in selected classes, and it promises to be a lively group, representing at least five countries and a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives.

I’m very enthusiastic about this new initiative, and I’d like to encourage more students to join this select circle. YouTube is great, but with 5,000 people watching every day (we are up to nearly 45,000 subscribers), I can’t possibly keep up with the discussions. This online class will allow us to have a more compact, focused learning environment, featuring more meaningful online discussions and feedback.

Please join us! You will be welcomed.

Jews in the Land of Israel, 132-1492 and How did the Jews Survive the Medieval Period?

Two brief discussions, concluding the second of three semesters of the Jewish History Lab series of lectures. Premiering at 12 pm ET, hopefully with live chat. Enjoy in good health!
