“This past Shabbat, we witnessed the deadliest massacre of Jews ever on American soil in which 11 of our brothers and sisters were brutally murdered as they gathered together in prayer,” writes Rabbi Levi Dubov of the Bloomfield Hills Chabad Center. “When tragedy strikes, where is God? Why would a loving God abandon us? While Judaism offers insight in this area, the larger question is, do we even want insight? Can any insight soothe the pain and assuage the grief?”
Dubov invites the community to learn about God’s response to suffering on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The The class will be offered twice:
• EVENING: 7:30-9 p.m., at the Bloomfield Hills High School.
• MORNING: 11-a.m. – 12:30 p.m., at Jewish Family Service of Metro Detroit.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on joining.
“This class is open to the entire community, free of charge, and is dedicated to the memories of those who lost their lives in the horrific Pittsburgh shooting, and for the full and speedy recovery for those injured in the attack,” Dubov writes.
