Jewish history has always been marked by encounters with other religions. Jewish law (halakhah) has had to grapple with balancing the proscriptions of the Bible and early rabbis with the necessities of interreligious interaction in the diaspora. This course will examine the various approaches to this question taken by Jewish legal authorities, through case studies of interactions with Christianity, Islam, and other religions, around issues such as martyrdom and business dealings.
