Avivah Zornberg: Axe for the Frozen Sea Within Us - Law and Violence on Friday, May 13th, 2016.

Friday, May 13, 2016 - 9:00am

After the Revelation at Sinai, civil laws are given – many of them in the form of short narratives that describe how the violence of human aggression is to be met by the violence of the law. We will explore midrashic, hassidic and psychoanalytic sources that deal with the problem of integrating aggression and empathy.
