The Emory University European Sephardi Jewish Culture program offers a six-week intensive course devoted to Spanish Jewish culture in Europe. The program travels to Spain, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Greece. Following the footsteps of the Jews who were expelled from Spain in 1492, the course will be held on location in Europe, where Jews established thriving communities after the expulsion. The course explores over 500 years of Sephardi Jewish culture in Europe in the context of general European culture. Emphasis is placed on the interaction and the communication of Jews with Christians and Muslims in Europe during this period. The course offers two parts: pre-1942 study in Spain and post-1942 study in France, the Netherlands, Italy, and Greece. It combines visiting people and sites, participating in celebrations at home and in community centers, and attending lectures and discussions. The teaching format involves "hands-on" experience of the issues in different locations in Europe. In addition, students will attend lectures presented by Emory Summer Program faculty as well as local scholars and community leaders.
