Should Religious Jews Care About Beauty?
Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)
If ‘charm is deceptive and beauty vain’ (Proverbs 31:30), then why does the Torah tell us that Sarah, Rebecca and Rachel were all beautiful, and that Joseph was particularly handsome? How important is physical beauty in the Jewish tradition? The answers to such questions lie in the story of Chanukah.
In this fascinating special lecture, Rabbi Dweck will explore the Maccabean face-off with Greece in order to uncover what the Torah has to teach us about the role of beauty in our lives and our world.
