Vengeance

image description

When tragedy occurs it is natural to feel a whole range of emotions, including anger, or even its more potent relative, rage. Anger can fuel a desire for vengeance.
Jewish texts have a lot to say about the desire for vengeance, which, according to Merriam Webster, is defined as: the act of doing something to hurt someone because that person did something to hurt you or someone else. Judaism has a different definition, which we will see through our study.
