Rabbi Iser’s talk, "Where Was God At Auschwitz?: Jewish Theological Reflections on the Holocaust" will survey of a variety of Jewish attempts in literature and theological writings to struggle with the problem of theodicy (justifying God) in light of the Holocaust. He will explore questions of faith including “How did God allow this to happen?” and “Can we continue to believe in a just and compassionate God after the events of the Holocaust?”
