Item Description:

As Rabbi Wein states in the opening to this lecture, “oftentimes in history there are accidental figures that play a role that they never volunteered for. And, most of the time they are also unaware of the role they play in the bigger picture”. In the case of Menachem Mendel Beilis, he was one such figure. Beilis was targeted in a famous blood libel that took place in 1912 in Russia. Join Rabbi Wein as he traces the history and mindset of the Russians that lead to the perpetration of this blood libel and how Beilis became a pawn in a greater scheme of Russian politics and antisemitism.
