Abstract

The Second Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in the year 70 C.E. and a large part of the Jewish population was either killed, sent into exile, or sold into slavery. The sages of the Talmud and Midrash attempted to answer the question as to why Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed. This paper will examine some of the reasons and see what lessons for today may be learned from them. One major lesson is that baseless hatred can tear apart a company.
