Suffering Is Precious: What, in the Talmud, is the worst disease of all? Can one treat a patient against his will? Is it fair to quarantine the sick? And what happens when a psychological treatment backfires? Join Gila Fine’s four-part series on talmudic tales of illness, exploring its medical, emotional, and social aspects, the challenges it poses and opportunities it provides.

This is a virtual tour – The best way to appreciate Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day) and Yom HaAtzmaut (Independence Day) is by going on a tiyul – walking through the land and reliving the miracles on location. Unfortunately, the current situation prevents even those who live here from doing that this year. So we’re going virtual – enabling people around the world to participate! In this virtual tour with Rabbi Alan Haber we will “visit” a number of battle sites in the Jerusalem area from the crucial weeks prior to the end of the British Mandate in May, 1948. Through maps, photos and videos shot this week on location, we’ll relive the dramatic battles, mourn the young lives lost and appreciate the miraculous victories as we prepare to celebrate 72 years of Israel’s Independence.
