Course Description

This course will look at the Tanakh’s construction of the “Other” as a tool for Israel’s self-understanding. It will address Ancient Israel’s fear of, and attraction to, the Other, and the ways in which the Tanakh addresses that deep, internal, national struggle. Most importantly though, it will look at those ways in which Tanakh subverts its own stereotypes, teaching compassion and humanism as it demands difference.
