New JLI Course Attracts Capacity Crowd in Leeds

Thursday, 6 May, 2010 - 8:45 pm

Iyar 133 - Copy.jpgA capacity crowd of over 40 people filled Leeds Lubavitch Centre for the start of the new Jewish Learning Institute course, Beyond Never Again.

The first session, entitled 'Struggling with G-d,' looked at faith after the Holocaust, asking how G-d could have allowed it to occur.

Arek Hersh MBE, an Auschwitz survivor and veteran of Israel's War of Independence, opened the course and answered questions about his experiences and beliefs.

Rabbi Eli Pink, education director of Leeds Lubavitch Centre, challenged delegates to reason how and why an omnipotent, omniscient and 'omni-benevolent' G-d could allow the Holocaust to happen.
 
"This was the best JLI session yet," enthused one regular JLI attendee. "The atmosphere in the room was electric."
