Judaic studies podcasts

Here are some great resources on the Web for Judaic Studies podcasts:

Center for Jewish HistoryWebsite
Here you will find audio and video recordings of events at New York’s Center for Jewish History. Programs include Michael Walzer speaking on “The Anomalies of Jewish Identity,” a panel discussion on Jewish journalists in America and a symposium on the impact of Baruch Spinoza.

Maimonides Mini CourseWebsite — Lenn Goodman, Vanderbilt University
This five-part lecture series is an introduction to the life and thought of Maimonides, the great 12th-century Jewish philosopher.

Samuel and Althea Stroum Lectures in Jewish StudiesWebsite — University of Washington
This is an annual lecture series at the University of Washington. Here are audio and video recordings of eight of these series. I especially recommend the May 2006 series in which Anita Norich of the University of Michigan speaking about Sholem Aleichem’s famous character, Tevye the milkman, and how film adaptations of the Tevye stories reflect Jewish culture in America.

    You might also be interested in Ken Spiro’s Crash Course on Jewish History. I think it’s from 1999.
