Herb and Jim will explore three key transitions on the path from ancient to modern Judaism. We'll examine:
• Elijah's mandate that the people must choose between worship of Yahweh or the fertility religion.
• The movement from temple to priesthood sacrifice, with the rise of the lay synagogue teacher.
• The post-Enlightenment emergence of modern Judaism.

Over the past 5,000 years, the cultures and peoples of the Indian subcontinent have developed in fascinating and complex ways. Today, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh comprise over 20% of the world’s population and form one of humanity’s most dynamic and significant core groups. In this workshop, we will discover that the best way to understand present conditions in the subcontinent is to sketch the development of their peoples from the earliest human presence in the region up to the present. The thread we will trace is the changing, yet somehow consistent, culture of India.
