Rosh Hashana 5783: Two Days, Two Messages?

Posted by David Gutbezahl on September 19, 2022
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem

This Rosh Hashana podcast is sponsored by Ricki and David Bernstein in memory of Ricki’s parents, Beatrice and Murray Kirschblat, survivors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, respectively. Beatrice and Murray were each the sole survivors of large families which perished in the Shoah.

How does the story of the Binding of Isaac and Sodom and Gomorrah relate, and how do we bridge what appears to be an ethical gap between these two stories? What connection can we form between the story of the Binding of Isaac and Rosh Hashana?

Credits: Rabbi Leon Morris, President of Pardes, and Rabbi Meesh Hammer-Kossoy, Director of the Year Program.
