Preempted this Thursday, January 12 due to monthly board meeting

Come join us for a lively discussion of various topics on Judaica.


We will continue reading Ecclesiastes (Kohelet), the Biblical book that includes such familiar English quotations as “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity” and “The race is not always to the swift” and “For everything there is a season.” In class we will use the new Jewish Publication Society translation available on Sefaria, but any translation you have will be fine. You can find Ecclesiastes in any Hebrew Bible.
