Tomer Devorah Alumnae Shiurim - Some Thoughts on Jewish Exceptionalism

Published on Jan 14, 2022
Is America Exceptional? As we get ready for Succot, we focus on the idea of Jewish Exceptionalism, as seen in the tefillot for the Chagim - Atah bachartanu mikol ha'amim - what does that mean?
This shiur is in response to great question sent in an email from an alumnus:
I have a pretty simple question that's been bothering me. I am having a hard time understanding the Jewish view on-Jews. The traditional answers that I have learned don't settle well with me. I just want to understand how God would create some people at a higher advantage from birth. (even though yes i know some people are born poor/rich/healthy..)
