Jesus in Jewish Context

4 Tuesdays: October 15th – November 5th, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM / Course Fee: $120

at the Center for Continuing Education with Ze’ev Aviezer. To Register visit

Ze'ev Aviezer earned his MA degree in Religious Education from Hebrew Union College’s Institute of Religion. He was granted the only certification as an Adult Educator by Hebrew Union College. He has taught adult education courses for Westchester Adult Jewish Education and Larchmont Temple, where he has served as Executive Director for the past 22 years.

Jesus was born a Jew and died as a Jew. He lived during the Second Temple Period, also known The Intertestamental Period, a period during which cataclysmic events, that still affect us today, were taking place. By reading translations of Hebrew, Greek and Latin source documents including the New Testament, Josephus, Pseudepigrapha, Apocrypha, the Talmud, and Midrash, this course examines the Jewishness of Jesus and the points of opposition between Judaism and his teachings, all in the context of the political, economic, religious and intellectual conditions of his time.
