Sex, Beauty, War and Despair: Adult Themes in the Five Megillot with Rabbi Kosak
Sunday, February 2 – June 21, 9:45-11:15am, (12 weeks total; full schedule available with registration)
The five megillot are some of the enduring classics of world literature. Jews read these scrolls publicly on holidays throughout the year, but without the regularity with which we read the Torah. As a consequence, these important sections of the Bible are less familiar to the average synagogue goer. In this course, we will have an opportunity to examine the megillot, their deeply human themes, and the light they can shed on our own lives.
Cost: $36 ($72 for non-members).
