Lunch & Learn: Preaching the Prophets

November 21 2019, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Free

Join Rabbi Friedman for a series of lunch and learn classes, Preaching the Prophets, which take place on Thursdays from 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM at Cohen, Placitella & Roth, PC (2001 Market Street, #2900). Registration is required by calling the office at 215.735.5148.

Our annual cycle of reading Torah and Haftarah stretches back almost to the dawn of Rabbinic Judaism, and it turns out that the haftarot (prophetic readings) for the festivals were among the first readings to be organized into the system. Pesikta de-Rav Kahana, a very early collection of Midrash, explores the deeper meaning of the festivals through these haftarot. Our Lunch & Learn class will look at several of these midrashim and explore what our earliest rabbis saw as the essential elements of our holidays and Jewish spiritual life. All texts will be provided in English.

Please bring your own lunch.
