Primary Instructor:

This course will survey the major developments in Jewish History since 1880. The course will begin with the rise of Anti-Semitism at the end of the nineteenth century, and the Jewish responses to it: assimilation, socialism, Zionism and other forms of Jewish nationalism, and emigration to the New World. The course will then turn to the new centers of World Jewry that grew out of these responses: Soviet Jewry, American Jewry, and the State of Israel. Other topics include the impact of World War One, the Arab-Israeli Conflict, Hitler’s Final Solution, the creation of the State of Israel, the Jewish exodus from Arab states, and the impact of feminism.
