New Jersey Rabbi to Teach Jewish Course Through Visual Arts at Catholic University

A rabbi will introduce a new course on “Jewish Ideology Through Visual Arts” at Roman Catholic Seton Hall University on Jan. 29, the university announced. The course will be conducted by Rabbi Reuben R. Levine of Temple Beth Ahm, Springfield, N.J. It will offer three credits and will be open to visitors and non-matriculated students as well as to regular students at the university. Rabbi Levine described the course as “a captivating pictorial journey through the artifacts, symbolism and structures which surround our observance and worship.” He said it was initiated because of the rising interest in the Judaic origins and influences in Western religions.
