The study of Judaica is a universal experience. The ancient Judaic tradition is the foundation for modern-day Judaism, Christainity and Islam.

The incredible story of the Jews will enhance the student's appreciation of a people who have produced a wealth of notable
American personalities, such as Isaac Stern, Irving Berlin, Mel Brooks, Abbie Hoffman, Abraham Maslow, Louis Brandies, Yehudi Menuhin, Bette Midler, Leonard Bernstien, Kirk Douglas, Bob Dylan and many, many more.Yet, all the various contributions of the Jewish people, amazingly underscores the fact that they comprise less than two percent of the Unied States population.
