Mourning Our Inability to Mourn

Mourning Our Inability to Mourn

In this talk with Rabbi Gidon Rothstein we will look at the lost institutions of the time of a Beit HaMikdash – the Temple, the King, Sanhedrin, and Prophet. By exploring these institutions we will consider how life was supposed to work in a Jewish State and gauge if we are able to mourn those losses fully enough to count ourselves as those who truly mourn for Jerusalem.
