This course will be used for off-campus study programs including Global Course Connection components. JUDAIC 319 will allow students enrolled in JUDAIC 281 the option to apply for the Global Course Connection study abroad program in Israel.

An off-campus study course under the supervision of a Judaic Studies faculty member. Students will be in engaged in on-site deep exploration of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the two main urban centers of Israel. Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are perceived as two polar opposites in the cultural geography of Israel. Jerusalem is a historical city in the Judean mountains with a rich and sacred past, while Tel Aviv - "the first Hebrew city" - seemed to emerge from the sand dunes of the Mediterranean Sea 100 years ago. Through the years, both cities went through massive changes—geographical, cultural and social—and their images have developed in complex ways. Students will explore key sites in the history of two cities. They will be meeting for a conversation with writers, filmmakers and artists living and working in the two cities. Students will also explore the ethnic, racial and cultural diversity of the population in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, including Ashkenazi and Mizrahi Jews (Jews from Arab countries), religious and secular Jews, Arabs (Moslem and Christians) and migrant workers.
