In guiding the return from exile, Ezra and Nechemiah took on the task of rebuilding a people broken by failure, destruction and exile. In this class given by Rabbi Mike Feuer as part of ELS 2017, we will explore the power of the socio-political, religious and physical constructs which they used to give form to the Jewish people in their day. As we uncover the riches of the past, we will also ask ourselves whether the tools of Ezra and Nechemiah are relevant to today.
