What Do We Do When It All Falls Apart
The destruction of the First and Second Temples were events of cataclysmic proportions that left the Jewish community reeling in its wake. Everything they knew, or thought they knew, had been destroyed, at the hands of foreign rulers, perhaps even sanctioned by God. In this session, we'll turn to the Talmud to get a window into the different ways the young priests and rabbis responded to this great sadness. As we watch them move through their grief, we'll hope to learn what their own attempts at resilience can teach us about resilience in our times. Part of the EDCJCC Yom Iyyun 2018 on Hanukkah. There is no audio recording of this session.
