Can one person save an entire community from disaster? The Talmud is filled with stories of drought, pestilence, war, and the righteous individuals who helped their communities through difficult times. In three sessions, we will turn to these stories from the third chapter of Ta'anit -- all of which revolve around the image of a crumbling wall -- and consider what they can teach us about crisis, fate, miracles, and resilience. All texts will be provided in translation and people with any or no previous experience with Talmud are welcome.
