THIS SUNDAY: Shiva Asar B'Tamuz Program with Drisha

07/17/2019 01:19:18 PM


This Sunday, July 21st, we are honored to welcome the Drisha Institute for Jewish Education for a day of Shiva Asar B'Tamuz programming.

A BREACH IN THE WALL: How do we react when we sense that we are witnessing the beginning of the end?

The Seventeenth of Tammuz commemorates the day that the Romans breached the outer wall of Jerusalem. From this point, the destruction of the Temple just three weeks later may have been inevitable, but both historians and rabbinic legends suggest that there were earlier points at which the calamity of Tisha b'Av could have been avoided. 

In our own lives, we sometimes have experiences - be they personal, communal, national or global - that give us a feeling of sliding toward catastrophe. How do we respond to such foreboding, especially when not everyone around us shares the same feeling? We will examine this sensation through the lens of episodes from Tanakh and rabbinic literature.
