Purim & Passover with Rabbi Jack Luxemburg
Tues, March 26 (10:30 am)
March 26 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
While very different in tone and celebration, Purim (a minor holiday) and Passover (one of three major holidays) both recall moments of deliverance for the Jewish people. The different perspectives represented by these holidays establish a tension in Jewish history and communal response to danger which persists in modern times. We will study the holidays, consider surrounding commentaries and trace the impact of each model on the Jewish world of today.
