  • Demons In the Jewish Tradition - A Special Presentation by Rabbi Bearman
    Tuesday, December 20, 7:30-8:30 pm, at TBC

    Since the beginning of the Jewish tradition, the rabbinic imagination has populated the world with fearsome demons (evil spirits). Some of these demons arise from ancient biblical traditions while other are relatively recent (medieval) additions.

    Rabbi Bearman will introduce us to some of the most memorable of these demonic figures including the goat-demon, Azazel, and the much-maligned Lilith who, in the last few decades, has become something of a feminist icon.
