Rabbinic Inferno: Hell in Classical Judaism

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

In their 1885 Pittsburgh Platform, the leading rabbis of American Reform Judaism declared that “we reject as ideas not rooted in Judaism, the belief … [in] Gehenna (Hell).” Arguing that that such assumptions misrepresent the history of Judaism, this lecture will examine ancient Jewish discourse about Gehinnom to unearth the distinctive values, anxieties, aesthetics, fantasies, and hopes encoded within classical Jewish culture. Without such an analysis, our understanding of Judaism remains incomplete.
