Jewish History Uncensored

Dec 24, 2020

In this episode we look at the Vilna Cherem of 1772.  We look at the broader historical context. How much of a part did the Vilna Gaon play in this Cherem?  Was the Vilna Gaon the main cause of the Cherem? Was there a connection between the Vilna community crisis and this Cherem? Were there other major causes for the Cherem?
