During this session families will learn the stories of several individuals who survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Europe after the war. They saw the destruction of the societies in which they grew up and they lived through the harshest years of Communist rule and, ultimately, witnessed the fall of Communism as well. During all this time they lived their lives and raised their families and chose to retain their Jewish identities.
In this lesson about the "Foundations of Halacha and Aggada", Students will engage in a unit exploring various definitions of Jewish community. They will study both classical (Biblical and Rabbinic) texts and contemporary materials to consider ethical problems raised by living in community.
