The Nature of the Jewish Scriptures
Rabbi Ronald Bluming will do an overview of the Jewish perspective on the Hebrew prophets and the books that are known as the “writings.” Do Jews believe the prophets predicted the future? What’s up with those crazy symbols in Ezekiel and the weird behavior of some of the prophets? Is Song of Solomon a love story or a metaphor? How did the Jews use the Psalms? The Rabbi will explore these questions and more in two sessions in Fellowship Hall.
