Description 7-9:15 pm, Wednesdays, Oct. 2- Nov. 13, The Prophets and the role of prophecy 7pm - 8pm, led by Rabbi Cindy Enger What was the role of prophecy in ancient Israel, and who are the prophets in the Biblical text? We will study selections from the Prophets section of the Bible, and explore how the rabbis incorporated the various books of Prophets into the Jewish liturgical cycle and calendar year. We will also discuss the importance of the prophetic voice in Jewish tradition - in the past and in our world today. All texts will be provided; everyone is welcome (knowledge of Hebrew is not required!). The Jewish Century 8:15pm - 9:15pm, led by Howard I. Aronson This masterwork of interpretation by Yuri Sleskine begins with a bold declaration: the Modern Age is the Jewish Age, and we are all, to varying degrees, Jews. Slezkine describes the three great Jewish migrations of the 20th century: from the Pale of Settlement to America, to Israel, and to Moscow and other cities of the Russian Empire and the USSR. The book is available from the Harold Washington Library, or from bookstores or from Amazon, and there is a Kindle edition.
