About the Course:

In this course, we will examine how journalism manifests in both Jewish culture and in American society, as well as the world.  Through an interdisciplinary perspective, we will examine the evolution of Jewish journalism and its modern day implications.  This course will expand on a variety of rhetoric and digital media approaches developed in Israel and in the United States and look at a number of case studies and guest speakers. Students will be responsible for writing their own pieces to be published online and in various news/ magazine publications.

Students will explore how to contextualize Jewish issues and Jewish experiences in American and Israeli media including such topics as freedom of religion, Anti-Semitism in the media, writing about religious identity and conflicts, and the history of Jewish community press. In addition, students will gain technical skills in interviewing, design, editing, and writing which will enhance their professional and personal development.


Any and all students are welcome to join. Students do not have to have any prior knowledge of Judaism or Journalism.
