Jewish Views on Messiah

This week I had the honor of leading sessions on Messiah and Messianism at, of all things, an Advent retreat for Christian clergy. It took place in a beautiful setting, at a convent situated right on the water in Rowayton. It was a wonderful opportunity to share and learn. Advent, after all, is their time of anticipation for the onset of redemption. Jewish messianism has its parallels but is far more, well, messy.

Here is the packet of materials I put together for the retreat. I plan to utilize them here for a discussion at Shabbat services on Dec. 25. Save the date. Maybe we'll even serve Chinese food.
