Description

Rather than studying Megillat Eikha, the classic text of destruction, we will instead look at the before and after. We will begin with the historical background and context to the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E., examining the 'Jerusalem myth', the notion that had taken hold over the previous centuries that the city could never fall, and then move to the post-script, studying the midrashic commentary to Eikha, which subverts, undermines, and rewrites the Megilla to replace themes of destruction and despair with ones of comfort and continuity. Based on shiurim by my teacher Dr Yael Ziegler
