On Account of a 'Rooster and Hen': Talmud: Stories of Tragic Destruction

This Gemara class takes you back in time to the beginning of the common era, as we revisit the narratives and events that ultimately caused the complete collapse of the Second Jewish Commonwealth and tragic destruction of the thriving Judean society which once flourished in Eretz Yisrael, even after the Holy Temple’s destruction by the Roman Empire. Annually commemorated in the saddest Three Weeks of the Jewish calendar (called Bein-Hametzarim), these fascinating yet sobering Talmudic records and reflections are found in Tractate Gittin (57a).
