Part of the learning series, The Power of Emotion: Judaism and the Inner Life

Grief is a primal emotion, often associated with paralysis, but sometimes it has the power to generate great change in the face of loss. In this session, we will study some rabbinic sources that focus on grief and the ways that the rabbis use it to transform their circumstances and their communities.  

With Dr. Rachel Rosenthal, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics, JTS.
