THIS EVENT IS CANCELED
Come explore with us the section of the Tanach (Hebrew Bible) known as the five scrolls – Ecclesiastes, The Book of Esther, Song of Songs, Ruth, and Lamentations. In each stand-alone session we will examine the structure and historic background of the scroll, and discuss its content and significance to Jewish life, as well as its role in the Jewish Year Cycle (each scroll is publicly read on a different holiday).
Tuesdays, Feb. 24 – March 24, 7:00-8:30pm
