Finding Meaning in Kohelet
Hosted By: My Jewish Learning
On Sukkot, during Shabbat morning services (this year on Oct 7), we chant Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, as part of our morning prayers. On the surface, Kohlet seems hopeless, expressing the fleeting nature of intellectual growth and financial achievement. Throughout the book, however, we experience gratitude, an orientation toward the present rather than the past or the future, and ultimately, a sense of spirituality. Deepen your Jewish holiday experiences and join MJL learners to analyze poignant passages in Kohelet as we conclude the high holiday season with intentions of presence and purpose for the new year.
