This 10-session course will examine the longstanding relationship between Judaism and Islam, broadening our understanding and challenging our assumptions. Jews and Muslims have co-existed, at times peacefully and at other times contentiously, for more than a millennium. Although there were moments of strife, during the first thousand years after the founding of Islam it was better to be Jewish in a Muslim country than in a Christian country. Outside the Middle East, though, Jews and Muslims continue to find ways to coexist peacefully and often productively.
