Purim: Where is God?
Unlike in most other places in Tanach, in Megillat Esther God is not mentioned at all. Join Rabbi Chaim Brovender as he explores a fascinating Gemara on this topic and why the seemingly disappearance of God, and lack of confrontation with Him, poses a major theological problem.
Rabbi Chaim Brovender is the Rosh Yeshiva of WebYeshiva and President of ATID - The Academy for Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish Education, in Jerusalem. He was the founding Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Hamivtar and Michlelet Bruria (today, Midreshet Lindenbaum) where he pioneered the teaching of Gemara to students for whom the Talmud had been a closed book. For over forty years he has been a leading force in teaching Torah in Israel and enabling his students to "learn how to learn" according to the renowned "Brovender Method."
