The Whole Megillah: Ecclesiastes

Wednesday, October 12, 2022 17 Tishrei 5783

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
 
 
 
We hope you'll join Rabbi Levy for the next installment of his series of adult education classes focusing on the five different megillot (scrolls) that are read over the course of the Jewish holiday calendar.  Jews typically read from the book of Ecclesiastes on Sukkot due to its focus on the ephemeral nature of life. As we sit and dine in temporary huts, we are reminded that nothing is truly permanent and that we are all impacted by changing tides and seasons. 
 
This class will dive into the book of Ecclesiastes, perhaps the most existential text in the Hebrew Bible, and discuss its traditional connection with Sukkot as well as how its ancient words speak to us today.
 
This event is online only.
