Visitor from Hebrew University on Tisha B'Av
The commemorative day of Tisha B’Av took place on Tuesday 1 August. As part of their learning on this solemn day, the Senior students and some teachers attended a talk by Rabbi Dr Howie Deitcher, who is currently visiting from the Hebrew University. The Rabbi led a text-based discussion on an extract from the Talmud, which deals with Yohanan Ben Zakkai - a leader of would be post-Temple Judaism. The group were thoroughly engaged with the fascinating discussion.
