The roar of Amos. The cry of Joel. The whine of Jonah. The plea of Micah. Have you heard the voice of God raging in the Prophets’ words? The classical prophets of Israel represent some of the most radical, dramatic, passionate, poetic and powerful messages that our tradition offers.

Over the course of 10 sessions, we will study essential passages from “Twelve Minor Prophets,” the book of the Hebrew Bible that brings together 12 distinct prophetic voices that are only minor in the sense that each one’s literary legacy is but few chapters. Small books with big voices.

Our sessions will be interactive, text-based studies with an eye to both literary medium and moral message. Please bring a Hebrew-English Tanakh.

Instructor: Rabbi Benjamin Samuels

Financial aid available.

Schedule: Weekly through January 9, 2019 (some weeks are skipped due to holidays; visit hebrewcollege.edu/meah for exact dates)
