Poland 1648-49: How Did the Rabbis Respond to the Destruction of Jewish Poland?

Posted January 21, 2015

In this lecture, we will explore how the rabbinic community responded to the massacres of 1648/49. Through the establishment of a communal fast day on the 20th of Sivan and the writing of selichot, we can learn much about their understanding of the massacres in Poland and their appreciation of the continuum of Jewish tragedies throughout the ages.
