Our World Religions series provides an in-depth look at the world’s main religious traditions. During an 8-session Term, we focus on a single belief tradition, examining that tradition's history and development, key figures associated with its founding or development, its sacred texts, contemporary beliefs and practices, and the associated festivals and commemorations.

Our Term 1 course is: “Understanding Judaism,” which provides a detailed introduction to the history, texts, beliefs and practices of the Jewish faith tradition.

Our 2021 Schedule for this series of courses is:

Term 1: “Understanding Judaism”
Term 2: “Understanding Islam”
Term 3: “Understanding Hinduism”
Term 4: “Understanding Buddhism”

Understanding Judaism:

Week 1: Early Biblical History: Genesis
Week 2: Early Biblical History: Exodus through Second Temple Period
Week 3: Diaspora, Development and the Emergence of Rabbinic Judaism
Week 4: Sacred Texts: Torah & Talmud
Week 5: Contemporary Beliefs and Practices

PREREQUISITIES:
Any of our Religious Diversity Term courses can be taken independently of the others and at any time and in any order. There are no prerequisites for any of the Religious Diversity courses.

GENERAL:
All classes are taught from an objective point of view. These are classes about religion and religious behavior, taught from an anthropological point of view, and are designed for participants to get a greater understanding of the depth and scope of the diversity that exists within the world’s various faith and belief traditions.

Class Day & Time:
This class meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00pm. There are eight weeks in the Term. The first session meets on Tuesday 16 February and the last session meets on Tuesday 6 April 2021.

Distance-Learning Options:
Live-streamed Hamilton classes are available via free Zoom software for those living outside the Waikato. Live-streaming allows you to participate fully in your own learning, ask questions of the instructor and participate fully in the same way as if you were in the physical classroom. Those unable to attend the scheduled date and time of the actual class sessions, or those who need to miss a class or two due to previous engagements or unexpected illness, can watch any or all of the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace and in their own time. Detailed instructions on how to access our distance learning components will be sent to you in the week before your course is set to begin.
