Adult Education 2017-2018 -- The Five Megillot
An in-depth study of the Five Megillot (Shir HaShirim/Song of Songs, Ruth, Eicha/Lamentation, Kohellet/Ecclesiastes, and Esther). Each of these five books is read as an additional reading on a holiday throughout the year. Through an examination of the texts themselves, as well as ancient and modern commentaries, we will develop a deeper appreciation for the Megillot themselves, an understanding of their connections to the holidays and a sense of how they speak to our lives today.
Tuesdays: 4:00-5:30 p.m. or 7:30-9:00 p.m.
