Take One

Taanit 16 and 17

November 29, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Taanit 16 and 17, inform us that God is suffering when we suffer. Rabbi Leon Wiener Dow joins us to explain this difficult idea, and why two different interpretations give us two radically different accounts of the Divine. Is God merely by our side, or does God, too, suffer? Listen and find out.
