Taanit Esther Learning: Celebrating Amidst Grief and Pain

Thursday, March 21st
4:00PM ET

The Jews fasted on this day to call out in anguish at the despair and fear for the future of the Jewish people.

Many of us are experiencing these feelings and more. At the same time, Jewish tradition teaches that once the Hebrew month of Adar starts, we should be happy. How do we hold this all? How can we celebrate in the midst of tremendous grief, pain, and loss?

Join T’ruah and Rabbi Amichai Lau Lavie, Rabbi Jericho Vincent, and Esther Sperber to mark Ta’anit Esther, the Fast of Esther.
Our teachers will help us navigate the tension of the joyful redemption of the Jews in the Book of Esther, the story’s disturbingly violent ending, and the grief and fear many of us are experiencing right now.
