Elisha Ben Abuya: Judaism’s Greatest Heretic!

By
Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson

Elisha Ben Abuya: Judaism’s Greatest Heretic! Sermon. Jews have always been story whisperers. We received stories and launched as a people. We told stories about those stories and Oral Torah was born. And we have recounted tales about each other – our sages, their wisdom, foibles, and experiences. We knew (and know) that wisdom isn’t about timeless precepts; it’s found in lives actually lived and in lessons learned. Gather and listen as we share the wisdom stories of our sages of old and to the insights they offer!

This month’s session is: Elisha Ben Abuya: Judaism’s Greatest Heretic!

Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson is the Abner & Roslyn Goldstine Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies of American Jewish University, a Professor of Philosophy, and a grateful member of IKAR.
