Why do bad things happen to good people? It is remarkable that our sages addressed this issue some 2,500 years ago and wrote a whole book about it, the book of 'Job.'
We covered the first half of the book last month, where Job complains bitterly about his suffering and asks God to explain Himself. Job's friends defend God and condemn Job.
In this session, we study the second half of the book, chapters 22-42, where God responds to Job, Job apologizes (or does he?), but God criticizes Job's friends. Who is right? Whose side is ther writer on?
Read the text in advance and join the conversation. We meet in the Board Room.
We are a welcoming, participatory, family-friendly and diverse Jewish community that offers Shabbat and holiday services throughout the year and education programs for children and adults. This is an ideal opportunity to meet members of our unique congregation.
