A virtual event presentation by Rabbi Avidan Freedman


Maimonides writes that one who looks at past tragedies as mere happenstance is acting “cruelly”. Rather, the events of the past must goad us to introspection. Using the writing of Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik as a model, we will explore how to suggest directions of introspection that Israeli society needs to consider, and how to do that without making the claim of understanding God’s plans for the world.


Rabbi Avidan Freedman completed a Masters Degree in Jewish Education at the Azrieli Graduate School, and received rabbinical ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and from the Israeli Rabbinate. He is an educator at the Shalom Hartman Institute’s high school and post-high school program, and an activist who founded Yanshoof, an organization dedicated to establishing moral limits for Israeli weapons exports.
