Fallen Angels and Forbidden Fruit

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

Many of us are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve and its message of free will. Jews in late antiquity told another story as well that offers a different perspective on human evil and misfortune. We will explore the story of the fallen angels from the ancient text 1 Enoch and reflect on its message regarding the human condition and its relevance for us today.
