The Holocaust was more than the greatest catastrophe in Jewish history. It is a watershed in human civilization. The event challenges the credibility of religions, in particular Judaism and Christianity, confronts the fundamental assumptions and self-understanding of modern civilization, and demands revisions in ethical norms and behaviors. One of the world's leading Holocaust theologians, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, in decades of teaching and writing, has taken up the challenges of this conversation head-on. As he concludes, the Holocaust is far too big an event to assimilate into any prior version of Jewish theology. It requires new answers and new paradigms. In this course, we will explore Greenberg's revolutionary framework of covenant and what he sees as the core vision of Judaism in the modern world in order to begin thinking about these huge, terrifying, and challenging themes.
