Thematic Issue 1
Jewish Religious Traditions.
Yearly Cycle – Dietary Laws – Ritual Slaughter – Circumcision
The first thematic issue offers insights into religious traditions and the diversity of Jewish life. It concentrates on four focal points: the yearly cycle, dietary laws, ritual slaughter, and circumcision. These core components of the Jewish faith are the topic of frequent antisemitic prejudices, which persists among other reasons because of the lack of knowledge necessary to refute them. Thematic Issue 1 therefore places these Jewish religious traditions in their historical context and disseminates multi-perspectival knowledge about them.
