Lost and Isolated Jewish Communities

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

This is a 4-session course that runs through April 28. The cost is for the whole series.

Mainstream Jewry has encountered communities spanning Asia, Africa, and the Americas claiming to belong to the Jewish people or to be descendants of lost Israelite tribes for centuries. Who are these groups, how did they get “lost” or become isolated from the rest of known Jewry, and why have their claims been accepted or rejected?
