Taming the Beast: Trauma in Religious and Political Life

By Sousan Abadian, Tamar Miller

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2008

The authors consider how the dynamics of trauma continue to play out in Jewish political and religious life. They advocate opening a conversation in the Jewish community in Israel and the Diaspora about how historical traumas continue to shape the meaning the Jewish people make of their collective experience today. The authors examine contemporary events through the lens of such Jewish trauma narratives as Passover and Purim.
