Seeking the 36

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Seeking the 36 is a quixotic quest by teenage seeker Nico Lanson to find the Lamed Vov, the Thirty-Six Just Souls of Jewish folklore, in the world today. According to the legend, there are 36 anonymous individuals so righteous that they counterbalance all the sins and follies of mankind, and keep our troubled world afloat.  Nico meets a mysterious guide at the Holocaust Memorial in Boston who tells her of the legend. Nico’s search leads her from ordinary folk in Boston Common, to potential candidates known for their good works, and finally to Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal movement.
