“Big Questions” Series Marks 9/11

 

Global Day, the highly momentous large scale international event, which takes place this year on November 18th

 

NEW YORK, NY – Where were you when the towers fell?

In an effort to encourage discussions on compelling issues of the day, while fostering an interactive dialogue leading up to the Global Day of Jewish Learning on Sunday November 18, 2012, the “Big Questions” forum has been created.

As we approach 9/11 the question being posed to the public is: Do you bless the bad?

We are about to commemorate the September 11th tragedy. How do you relate to bad things that happen? The Talmud tells us that we are supposed to bless the bad. Nonetheless, the rabbis understood that this would be very challenging…

On this year’s Global Day of Jewish Learning, we will study a text from the Talmud (Berakhot 54a): wherein, Rabbi Yehuda says… For rain and other good tidings, one says: Blessed… who is good and who does good. Over bad tidings, one recites: Blessed (are you) the true Judge.

We want to hear from you. How do you relate to bad things? What are your thoughts, your associations? Do you bless the bad?

Share your thoughts on this question through the Global Day website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

Global Day, the highly momentous large scale international event, which takes place this year on November 18th, brings world Jewry together in the spirit of Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz’s call, “Let my people know.” This year’s third annual event will focus on the themes of blessings and gratitude.
