History of Judaism and Divisions
Early Jewish Religion & its Neighbors: Clearly, Judaism did not develop within a religious "vacuum" but in fact was part of a rich religious life on the Fertile Crescent. With reference to Genesis, what kinds of stories seem to have been shared between Judaism and its neighbors? With reference to Abraham, Moses, and David, were there any stories and elements that made it unique?

Judaism and Zoroastrianism Certain core religious concepts and perennial themes are equally essential to understanding both the ancient Judaism of the Biblical period, as well as the subsequent Rabbinical Judaism of the contemporary world. Do you think that some of the beliefs from Zoroastrianism might have made their way into early Rabbincal Judaism and into modern Judaism?

The Sects of Modern Judaism When we encounter Judaism today, we might be surprised that there are "denominations" within it and divisions, just like there is in Christianity. What are they and what is the difference between them? Which sect or denomination of Judaism in your mind, is best able to retain the essence of Biblical and Rabbinical Judaism as a viable alternative to "modernity"? Why? Do you think that a religious/spiritual alternative to modernity is a good thing? Why or why not?
