THE STAR AND THE CRESCENT:
The Long Relationship of Judaism and Islam
Jews and Muslims have co-existed, at times peacefully, at 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 actually better to be Jewish in a Muslim country than in a Christian country. This course explores the historical evolution of the relationship between Judaism and Islam, broadens our understanding and    challenges our assumptions at a time in our own era when tensions are high.
