From ancient times to present day, Jewish communities have lived as minorities amidst a foreign majority population. In this environment, Jews have had to navigate the challenges of fitting in and ensuring their own physical and economic security while finding ways to preserve their integrity and continuity as an independent group. This short course examines a number of historical examples of Diaspora communities, including cases where multiple strategies are seemingly employed at one time to address these challenges.
