Deborah Wiater, Instructor
The class will give an overview of Jewish liturgy throughout the ages. We will look closely at the Second Temple period, specifically liturgy as it developed from the post-Babylonian exile to the destruction of the Second Temple. We will explore: the concurrent historical events and their impact on Jewish liturgy of the period; the central prayers of the Jewish people and their relationship to the New Covenant; and other time periods, such as the Talmudic, Medieval, Enlightenment and Modern periods. Finally, we will address the issue of the Messianic response to traditional liturgy.
