How Did We Survive?

How did the Jewish people survive?

Two thousand years ago, Roman armies destroyed the city of Jerusalem, and for the second time, the Jews lost their temple, their homeland and their sovereignty. But the fact is they could – and should – have lost much more.

No nation can exist for long with no home and no sovereignty – it would slowly fade away, until it just disappeared. And yet, somehow, the Jewish nation survived, and still endures today, countless generations later. How is such a thing possible?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he searches for answers in the story of the fall of Jerusalem itself, in a place far from the Temple – in the sands of Yavneh.
