A View to a Kill! : Talmud Stories of Tragic Destruction

Continuing our investigation into the verse, “Because for your sake we are killed all the time,” which literally speaks about martyrdom out of loyalty to our divinely inspired faith. Now, this offering provides fascinating homiletic insights as we explore three non-literal interpretations: euphemistically applying this to the mitzvah of Brit Milah, expert scholars who demonstrate the laws of ritual slaughter on themselves, and a final illustration demarking the meaning of true devotion to Torah study. The class concludes with shocking findings of mounds of Tefillin in the aftermath of the horrific Roman massacres perpetrated at Beitar. (Gittin 57b - 58a)
