Rabbi Yaakov Feldman, Topic 2, Session 1, On Suffering
Time morphs from past, to present, to future. We too morph from nothingness, to something, to … something else; and existence itself morphs from pre-existence to existence, to … something else. What’s that all about? And as if that wasn’t enough, we suffer and are grief-stricken a good part of it all. What’s it all about? Rabbi Yaakov Feldman will present some traditional views on life, death and suffering. Rabbi Feldman presents The Book of Ecclesiastes (Sefer Kohelet) on life’s meaning, and The Book of Job (Sefer Iyov) on human suffering. This is Part 1 of 2.
