Topics: Pardes Live and Mini-Series, History

Depending on who you ask Spinoza was either a dangerous heretic, the founder of modern thought – or both. Whichever side you take, this class will teach you why we might better call Baruch Spinoza the first secular Jew.

This lecture is part of the 5780 Pardes Community Education Spring session, January 12, 2020 – March 26, 2020.
