Episode Description:

Join us for a deeply moving class titled “Feeling a Person’s Pain,” where we delve into the essence of empathy and understanding through the lens of significant Jewish traditions and teachings. This class, inspired by the profound observances associated with Tisha B’Av, explores the themes of mourning, reflection, and the transformative power of sharing in the sorrows of others.
