Torah on Tap returns, Sunday March 31.
Even as we prepare to celebrate the foundational holiday of Passover, which is grounded in the concepts of redemption, freedom and rebirth, the last of the ISIS fighters in Syria are being rounded up and taken prisoner. For the last several years, ISIS has been synonymous with terrorism and unspeakable brutality. Their hatred went viral as they live streamed public executions, human degradation and more.
Now that they are the prisoners at the mercy of their captors – we must confront an old question: What is justice and where is the line between Justice and Revenge?
Join us at the former Habitat Tavern and Commons (now Archetype Brewing) for a sobering discussion of where and how we draw the line between justice and revenge.
- What can we learn from the Nuremburg Trials following the Holocaust?
- What does true justice as defined by our sages look like?
- Or is justice the balance between revenge and mercy?
As always, Torah on Tap is free and open to all. Varying viewpoints are not only welcome, but encouraged. Archetype is located in downtown Asheville, next door to Moog Music. There’s plenty of parking in the rear. And good news if you’re hungry, they’ll have small, locally-made bites available for purchase, including Poppy Popcorn, Asheville Pretzel Company pretzels, and Hickory Nut Gap Farm meat sticks. Roots hummus coming soon!
See you there!
