Tuesday Tel Aviv Torah: The Theological Significance of the Holocaust

The final week of the mini-series on reward and punishment looked at the question of the Shoah .

It began by studying the disagreement as to whether the Shoah constituted a unique event. Following this, we looked at the views of different theologians – from those who view it as punishment for sins (such as the Satmar Rebbe) to those who claim it portends the Death of God (such as Richard Rubenstein), as well as lots of positions in between (Eliezer Berkovits, Emil Fackenheim, Elie Wiesel and Irving Greenberg.)
