About the event
Collective punishment is wrong! Why should people be punished for someone else's sin?! Yet we find quite a few stories in the Bible that seem to imply that collective punishment is a thing! How can this be? Does Judaism believe in collective punishment?
Two examples of stories that seem to imply collective punishment are:
- Shimon and Levi, sons of Jacob, killed all the men of the city Shechem, because one of them raped their sister. People were punished for someone else's wrongdoing.
- In the war for the city of Ai, 36 soldiers were killed because of someone else's sin.
Join us for this upcoming Lunch & Learn, where we will be discuss this fascinating topic. The Lunch & Learn will be on Thursday, Nov 10th, at 1-2 PM, and will be given by Rabbi Yakov Barber.
The lunch will be served as a buffet. The menu is as follows:
- Crustless broccoli quiche
- Cream of mushroom soup
