Faculty-Led Program: LITR 280 in Israel (2020)

2018 Group

Discover Israel through the prism of the Literature of the Bible.  Studying key passages in the Hebrew Bible (Tanach) and The New Testament from a literary perspective, students will learn about the Biblical idea of the Land of Israel and the Holiness of Jerusalem - as reflected in the lives of David and Jesus. The Literature of the Bible will come to life as every day, in addition to class time, you will visit historic and religious sites in Jerusalem (Jewish and Christian Quarters of the Old City) and nearby places such as the historic Masada Mountain, the Dead Sea, Nazareth, and the Sea of Galilee. We will also visit two of Israel’s most important museums - the Israel Museum and Yad Vashem, the International Museum of the Holocaust.  In this class you will experience Israel’s religious and cultural sense of holy places and sacred time.
