'I Am with You in Distress': Jewish Responses to Communal Crisis and Tragedy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The history of the Jews is filled with persecutions and crises. From the time of the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem to the recent terrorist attacks in Israel, Jews have tried to respond to these challenges in different ways. Can these tragedies be explained as punishment for sins? As part of God's plan for the world? Or, are we to be silent in the face of these challenges? This session will study a selection of sources from throughout the centuries.
