    Making a Case for Healing, Even of Holocaust Wounds

    Bruce Weber

    April 25, 2001: ''The Gathering'' by Arje Shaw isn't a terribly good play, but it is an affecting sermon. The issue is forgiveness, the lesson is that the endless harboring of anger and resentment -- even over the egregious cruelties of the Holocaust -- is a soul-warping endeavor, and the message is that, for their own good as well as the world's, it is time for Jewish survivors to let go of their vengefulness and allow the healing to begin.
