Let’s imagine that one day we get out of all this crazy. The pandemic recedes, life is stable again, and we find our footing. Beyond social distance and sourdough, have we learned anything from this wild experience? If we have, what is it, and will it remain with us? What do we hope to forget about this time and what do we hope to remember? The question of remembering and then forgetting the lessons of greatest importance is one that the rabbis of the Talmud wrestled with. In this session we will look at some of the texts they wrote about remembering and forgetting Torah. (Let’s remember here that when they use the word Torah, it's not just ‘the book of the Torah’ but something more like ‘the deepest spiritual lessons of how to live.’) This session is brought to you by the team behind IYUN (iyun.us), a project which helps folks build community through the study of Torah. Come get a taste of IYUN with us!
