The fall of the Second Temple and the exile from Jerusalem were cataclysmic events in the life of the Jewish people. We will examine the reactions to this event through the study of historical and literary accounts of that period. While our emphasis will be on Talmudic and Midrashic stories, we also examine reactions of other societies to the event. As this was a seminal moment in the life of Rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity, we will have the opportunity to delve into the formative texts of both traditions. We will then discuss what lessons we can learn from that period which can assist us in building a better Jewish and general society.
