Suffering and Divinity in the Thought of the Aish Kodesh

The Aish Kodesh, a collection of drashot delivered by Piaseczna Rebbe in the Warsaw Ghetto, provides unique insight into the mind of this hassidic master as he grappled with the theological implications of unprecedented suffering. In this class we will read several excerpts from the Aish Kodesh, and discuss how they might be applied to contemporary questions of national and individual pain, and what the limits of those applications might be.
