BIRCAT HAMINIM – THE BLESSING OF THE HERETICS ACROSS TIME

Throughout Jewish history, liturgy has changed across time and communities. A prime example of this liturgical change is in the 12th Blessing of the Weekday Amidah, sometimes referred to as the 19th of the 18 (Shmonah Esrei): Bircat HaMinim (Blessing of the Heretics). Come delve into this liturgy and its variety, commentary from the Talmud and modern sources, and answer for yourself: Should we pray for the destruction of wicked people or of wickedness itself? No prior Hebrew knowledge is required.
