Jerusalem And The End Of Days

This course explores the symbolic and mythological significance of Jerusalem to the three Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It covers in brief the tortuous history of the conflict between the Children of Abraham over the Holy City and its territory; a conflict which is a potent mix of nationalism and religious fervour which continues to impede all efforts at a peaceful resolution.

Getting Started

  1. Start your Group: Anyone can start a Discussion Group – seek out some like-minded friends or put up a notice in your local library, bookshop or workplace. Please note a minimum of 6 people is required to start a new discussion group.
  2. Arrange the Meetings: New groups need to decide where and when to meet, and for how long – whatever best suits members' particular situations.
  3. Run your Group: Choose a secretary to liaise with WEA and your tutor, a Discussion Leader to chair meetings, a reporter to take discussion notes to send to your tutor, and maybe a librarian to look after the books.
  4. Start the Course: Contact WEA Sydney to enrol. Bookings can be made for one year, divided into two terms – Term 1 commences in February, Term 2 in July (Groups may make forward bookings for popular choices). Please indicate in what order your Group wishes to study the courses, if more than one course is booked.
