Jonah, the Reluctant Prophet

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

This is a 6-part course that runs from April 7-May 12.

A scan of the Books of Israelite Prophets seems to indicate that Jonah, despite his reluctance, was one of the most successful of Hebrew prophets. It is a shame that most Jews only encounter his narrative on Yom Kippur afternoon, at the end of a day of fasting, when perhaps attentiveness is not at its best. We will take our time to unpack the Book of Jonah and give it the attention Jonah didn’t want.

Please have a Hebrew Bible (English translation is fine) for this course. The text can also be found online here
