The problem of the suffering of righteous has engaged biblical writers, the rabbis, medieval philosophers and kabbalists, and modern Jewish thinkers. This collection of essays explores the nature of this fundamental issue from biblical times to the present day. Throughout, the contributors seek to untangle the various threads of this perplexity and relate their findings to the solution of this seemingly intractable theological dilemma.
