Rabbi in the House

Why do bad things happen to good people, in groups? What’s our moral obligation to intercede, as Jews and as human beings, to instances of genocide, oppression, and trauma as they occur across the globe? Rabbi Zach will bring ancient Jewish sources that speak to this topic to illuminate our discussion. Anyone is welcome.
