Living With Optimism After October 7th

In this insightful, yet counter-intuitive conversation, Liel will expand on why he is more hopeful after October 7 than he has been in a long time. October 7th, according to him, brought more people to embrace their love of and commitment to Judaism. It also forced us to understand Judaism as a distinct tradition with different moral guidelines and has required us to realign our priorities and double down on what really matters.
