Ayelet Gundar-Goshen on Jewish Mythology and Israeli Literature

May 28 @ 11:00 am


Literature loves catastrophes – they reveal a person’s true nature. For two thousand years, Jewish texts have faced this question: how should one behave when the world dissolves into chaos? In these moments we find ordinary men who turn into heroes, heroes who turn into villains, we find cruelty — but also grace, and love. From Noah’s Ark, through Amos Oz’s Jerusalem under siege, isolation is depicted as both a curse — and an opportunity.
