Does the Idea of “God’s Chosen People” Divide Jews and Christians?

September 30 , 4:00 pm

Coexistence in art: An exhibit at the national Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah in Ferrara displayed paintings by masters of the time that showed Jews and Christians together, like this painting of Moses seated next to Jesus.

Professor Joel S. Kaminsky of Smith College will examine how early Christians and ancient rabbinic Jews each adopted the concept of “chosenness” in the Hebrew Bible, and how these approaches to chosenness both united and divided their communities.
