Judaism is often considered a religion of the mind, defined by the study and practice of Jewish law, but it also has rich traditions as a religion of the body, engaging sights, sounds, emotions, and feelings of spirituality. The Embodied Judaism Series, held biannually at the University of Colorado Boulder, draws on materials housed in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections to explore the role of the body in Jewish life through public symposiums, featuring academic scholars, prominent practitioners, and artistic performers, and multimedia exhibits aimed at academic and non-academic audiences.

The Embodied Judaism Series is presented by the University of Colorado Boulder's Program in Jewish Studies, the University Libraries Rare and Distinctive Collections, and cosponsors.
