The Jewish Jesus : revelation, reflection, reclamation by Zev Garber( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a general understanding within religious and academic circles that the incarnate Christ of Christian belief lived and died a faithful Jew. This volume addresses Jesus in the context of Judaism. By emphasizing his Jewishness, the authors challenge today's Jews to reclaim the Nazarene as a proto-rebel rabbi and invite Christians to discover or rediscover the Church's Jewish heritage

Teaching the historical Jesus : issues and exegesis( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teaching the Historical Jesus in his Jewish context to students of varied religious backgrounds presents instructors with not only challenges, but also opportunities to sustain interfaith dialogue and foster mutual understanding and respect. This new collection explores these challenges and opportunities, gathering together experiential lessons drawn from teaching Jesus in a wide variety of settings—from the public, secular two- or four-year college, to the Jesuit university, to the Rabbinic school or seminary, to the orthodox, religious Israeli university. A diverse group of Jewish and Christian scholars reflect on their own classroom experiences and explicates crucial issues for teaching Jesus in a way that encourages students at every level to enter into an encounter with the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament without paternalism, parochialism, or prejudice. This volume is a valuable resource for instructors and graduate students interested in an interfaith approach in the classroom, and provides practical case studies for scholars working on Jewish-Christian relations.

Double takes : thinking and rethinking issues of modern Judaism in ancient contexts by Zev Garber( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The intent of these essays is to illustrate how shadows of longstanding traditions continue to shade current perceptions. Double Takes challenges the reader's assumptions about modern Jewish thought by demonstrating how the past can be an unpredictable lens for the present-day. An examination of contemporary themes in a historical perspective reveals unanticipated, even disconcerting, refractions."--BOOK JACKET

Alternative teaching methods in teaching introduction to Judaism by Zev Garber( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of introductory classes in Jewish Studies should be a systematic study of the Jewish people and their traditions as important elements in world culture. The introductory student of Jewish Studies should be exposed to an appreciation of the history, culture, and traditions of the Jews as an influential force in the history of man, and to the dynamics of Judaism as an ethnic and universal religion. This paper provides direction for standards and methodology in an introductory class on Judaism/Judaica. The paper discusses: (1) general objectives in a regular course offering in the Jewish religious heritage; (2) lectures, assignments, a 133 item bibliography on American Jewry, and possible outside reading for a thematic class entitled The Jew in America; (3) possible written assignments which might include a book or article review, a personal journal, or "synthesizing project"; (4) examples of role-playing, problem-solving, and games; (5) uses of multimedia resources; and (6) instructional uses of the photographic essay. The appendix is a listing of the producers and distributors of Jewish audiovisual material. (Author/MJK)

Jewish Studies at a Two-Year Public College (and) Lower Division Judaica Problems and Solutions by Zev Garber( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A program in Jewish Studies is being offered by the Los Angeles Valley College, Van Nuys, California. Courses are offered in elementary and intermediate Hebrew, Contemporary Hebrew Literature in Translation, History of the Jewish People, Hebrew Civilization I and II, Israel: The Theory and Practice of Zionism, Jewish Religious Heritage, The Jew in America, and Yiddish Literature in English Translation. The program was established on the strength of a number of factors: the vital, dynamic force of Judaism in Western Civilization; the need for change in the present situation of Jews in the U.S.; the contribution of Jews in every aspect of human endeavor; the legitimacy of Jewish content classes as courses in the schools of Letters and Sciences; service to the educational needs of some of the largest growing Jewish communities in California; the demand by Jewish college youth that courses be relevant to themselves as Jews; the participation of the Jewish community in enhancing the Jewish studies; and the administrative insight as to the importance of the program. Background, offerings, present standards, syllabus, methodology, characteristics of students and professors, observations in teaching several Jewish Studies classes, and some concluding remarks are presented.

Teaching Lower Division Hebrew Language and Literature at a Two-YearPublic College by Zev Garber( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jewish studies program at Los Angeles Valley College is discussed with an emphasis on the teaching of lower division Hebrew language. As the first two-year undergraduate program in the nation, it seeks to provide an appreciation of Jewish civilization. The program includes classes in Hebrew language, literature, civilization, Jewish philosophy, history, sociology, religion, Talmud, Yiddish literature and language, the Holocaust, and Jewish-American literature. The language classes are a self-contained unit with little connection with the content classes. Understanding, speaking, reading, and writing are stressed as the student is exposed to the structural principles of modern Hebrew grammar, while concentrating on linguistic Hebrew. Instruction in Hebrew literature uses a historical-critical method emphasizing the literature as an interpretation of history; where the instructor takes a more passive role allowing the students to have an interactive experience. A study of those students enrolled in Jewish studies courses from 1970 to 1975 found that 76% were Jewish, 80% were transfer students, and 51% were over 21. The majority were housewives over 35, who were married daughters of immigrant Jews. Fifty-five percent were the products of Jewish secondary education. A syllabus for a modern Hebrew literature course is included. (Mb)
The Journal Synthesizing Activity by Zev Garber( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The journal synthesizing activity is intended to combine aspects of the formal essay with that of a diary. Activities associated with lecture topics are written up as short journal entries of approximately five typewritten pages and are turned in during the weekly class session at which the related topic is being discussed. The journal project encourages a direct encounter of student with material, breaking up the doldrum of a lecture-only method of presentations. This document provides a sample syllabus for a Jewish Religious Heritage class. Fifteen lecture topics are provided, with accompanying suggested journal activities. Activities are many and varied, providing an opportunity for the student to develop methodology and preserve or alter deepseated commitments in his view of himself, society, nature, and history. The journal synthesizing activity enables the teacher to be less of a knowledge dispenser, and more of a knowledge facilitator, who leads the student to make discoveries and articulate values and conclusions.

Teaching the Holocaust at a Two-Year Public College by Zev Garber( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An approach to teaching the Holocaust is described in this report, based on the curriculum of an introductory class on the Holocaust offered at Los Angeles Valley College. First, the purposes of the course are outlined, E.G., to analyze the meaning and implications of the Holocaust, to examine responses from different perspectives, and to evaluate the potential for it to happen again. Next, the course objectives are presented including the development of an awareness of the nature of prejudice, an understanding of the motives of the perpetrators, and a perception of its results for Jewish communities and in terms of later political developments. Following a presentation of the course methods, which consisted of an analysis of the historical evidence, group discussions, and written evaluations, observations on the emphases and approaches which may be taken to teaching the Holocaust are provided. Next, the course outline identifies topics covered, including a definition of the subject; understanding anti-Semitism; and responses to the Holocaust from biblical, rabbinic, mystical, traditionalist, humanist, hassidic, literary, Christian, American Jewish, and Israeli perspectives. Finally, information is provided on written assignments for the course, which included a book review, novel, biography, article review, journal, role playing/problem solving, or a synthesizing project.
