When Things Fall Apart
Wednesdays with Hadar: Unit 4
When Things Fall Apart: A Theology Rooted in the Real with Rabbi Aviva Richman
Our immediate reaction when things go wrong may be to doubt or to turn away from God, to sever the relationship because it feels outside and out of place in our real experience. But what if our connection to God is, in fact, rooted in those very experiences. In this three-part series, we will study core motifs in texts from classical midrash to hasidut that insist that our relationship to God grow out of, and not in spite of, the reality in which we find ourselves, however “unideal.”
