COURSE DESCRIPTION

HOW DO WE DEVELOP WHAT IT TAKES TO DEAL WITH CRISIS?

Big. Bold. Questions. 
A six-week course exploring altruism, anti-Semitism, the existence of evil, and the search for meaning in the face of suffering. Grapple head-on with the deepest Jewish questions possible, and explore them at a level of meaning that touches the soul.


Lesson One: Wrestling With G‑d
Can We Understand Human Suffering?
 
Why does G‑d allow good people to suffer? Is any explanation adequate? Are we meant to silently accept what we cannot understand? Or is it our moral obligation to quarrel with G‑d about the existence of human tragedy?

Lesson Two: The Voice of Your Brother's Blood Cries Out
How the Holocaust Impacts Us as Jews
The universal message of the Holocaust emerges from the appreciation of its particulars. We cannot begin to fathom what was lost unless we are able to hear individual stories, and see the specific impact of the Holocaust on Jews and Jewish life.

Lesson Three: In Their Deaths They Were Not Parted
The Mitzvah of Kiddush Hashem (Sanctification of G‑d's Name)
What is the purpose of life, and what purposes make life worth living? Why are all those who died in the Holocaust considered holy martyrs, and how does our memory of them affect the way we live our lives today?

Lesson Four: Out of the Depths I Call to You
Finding Faith in Difficult Times
 
While we cannot always know "why" something happens, we can learn to use every experience as a catalyst for positive information. Faith is not a crutch for the weak, but the framework of life for the strong. Trust in G‑d is not born of simplistic denial of harsh reality, but of profound humility in the presence of the Devine plan.

Lesson Five: A Tree of Life to Those Who Cling to It
Halachic Questions of the Holocaust Era
Many who lived through the Holocaust continued to turn to Halachah (Jewish Torah law) for guidance. It served as a source of comfort and solace, a spiritual anchor and moral compass in a world gone mad.

Lesson Six: When Night Will Shine Like Day
Ensuring a Brighter Tomorrow
What can we expect of humanity after the Holocaust? How could the most advanced society on earth fall prey to moral bankruptcy? And what made thousands sacrifice their lives to save others? How can we retain faith in the future of the universe - and what can we do to ensure a brighter tomorrow?
