There are few concepts that offend the sensibilities of the modern world more than that of the Chosen People. For an audience raised with the Western value of equality, the idea of chosenness is so intellectually foreign that few are open to accepting it. This class will present an inspiring and positive view of the notion of the Chosen People, including a number of approaches to bridge the gap between this view and those who challenge its political correctness. Ultimately, this shiur will show that the concept of the Chosen People is not racism; that many non-Jews also accept this idea; that it is intellectually defensible; and that it is, in fact, truly inspiring.
