The Jewish Diaspora (350-1500) with Mike Farhi and Deborah Hammond

March 4, 11 and 18 at 7:30 pm via Zoom

We jump ahead a few hundred years from our last study and learn what was happening to Jews in Europe and the Middle East.  There were revolutionary changes in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities.  It was a time of accelerating technology and production and distribution of authoritative texts, accelerated by the invention of the printing press, codification of law and intersection of religions and cultures.  Our study will include the Crusades, the so-called Dark Ages that preceded it, the Renaissance, and the Great Expulsion from Spain.  The ultimate diaspora was the discovery of the 'New World' here in the Americas, which planted the seed of our Jewish community.
