Course Description: In 1831, the Second Cholera Pandemic struck Posen. Rabbi Akiva Eger was commended by the king of Prussia for his leadership during this trying time. In this four-part series we will meet this Talmudic giant and explore the different strategies he employed, while reflecting on our own experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic relating to several areas:

  • Reciting Kaddish
  • Navigating the High-Holidays
  • Are there mystical solutions to a plague?
  • Leadership in a pandemic

This course costs $36 and will include recordings of the lectures for all paying participants. If you have not made a payment yet, please email Simon@pardes.org.
