This your invitation to join the conversation as we grapple with some of life’s toughest questions, like “Why do good people suffer?”, “Is everything that happens pre-ordained?” and “Can’t God make a miracle for me?” In this six-part course, we’ll explore multiple understandings of these timeless questions through the eyes of the rabbinic sages as well as those of modern thinkers — including our own. Register today.
The course is based on “Where’s My Miracle: Jewish Traditions for Dealing with Tragedy,” by Rabbi Dr. Morey Schwartz, Melton’s International Director. For a more thorough understanding of the topics to be discussed, learners are encouraged to purchase the book separately. It’s available from Israbook Gefen Publishing House here.
