RELIGION 109: The Jewish Tradition
Professor Ronald C. Kiener, Department of Religion


The purpose of this course is to help students acquire a systematic understanding of the major concepts, rituals, holidays, and beliefs of the religion Judaism. While no prior knowledge of Judaism is assumed, those students who have engaged in previous Jewish study should view this course as an opportunity to fit fragmented bits of knowledge together into a coherent and sophisticated whole. For everyone else, this course will provide a useful survey of the religion Judaism.
