Confession, Accusation, Hope
How do we search for God when we feel God has betrayed us, or people have betrayed us and God's justice is nowhere to be found? This session focuses on contemporary Israeli poetry that is deeply embedded in words of prayer and words of Torah even as these words take on new meanings. We will engage the poetry as a model for struggling to be in relationship with God when the sacred words we inherit ring false, and when the world's problems resound loudly as ever.
Aviva Richman delivers a powerful keynote and shiur klali, featuring her original poetry, at our 2017 Summer Yom Iyyun, The Search for God: In Our Lives and in Our Communities
