Description

This two-part shiur focuses on the significance of the assassination of Gedalya but also addresses unusual and enigmatic reports from the early Second Temple period, including the reaction of the people to hearing the Torah read and their weeping and mourning on Rosh Hashanah as recorded in Nehemiah 8. Lurking in the background of this odd reaction is the murder of the Jewish governor; we examine its significance from a historic and national-memory perspective. The shiurim were given in loving memory of Batya Gittel bat Moshe Aharon and Malka
