What are the biggest mistakes in Jewish history? We asked Rabbi Charlie Buckholtz, senior editor at the Shalom Hartman Institute and author, to describe regrettable moments in Jewish history where a do-over might have been helpful. Part 1 of our Regrettable Moments series ran a few weeks ago and we received great feedback. Here is Part 2.   What do you think? Any regrets on our regrets? E-mail us at connect@jinsider.com.

After delivering some 1,500 lectures over the last 10 years on five continents, Brooklyn’s wandering Rabbi Simon Jacobson and his staff are finally ready to settle down. Secular-minded scholars, religious skeptics and Jews of every affiliation (and unaffiliation) will now join the chasidic author and lecturer in the Lower East Side at a newly renovated Meaningful Life Center, which has found itself a more permanent, well, center.
