Elijah & Elisha: Explore Boldness, Deceit, Treachery, & Kindness w/ Two Biblical Prophets
December 6 @ 8:45 am - 10:00 am
The Torah ends with the statement: “Never again did there arise in Israel a prophet like Moses” (Deuteronomy 34:10). Nevertheless, other prophets rose after Moses to face new and different challenges. Join us as we explore two of the early prophets: Elijah and Elisha. Their stories are intertwined with the nascent monarchies and the lives of those who surrounded them. As we explore their stories, we will encounter treachery, deceit, boldness, and kindness. We will delve into various levels of the text, with an eye toward context and world view. Together we will bring forward modern and ancient Midrash as a lens for understanding and contemplation. Open to everyone, no prior experience or text knowledge necessary!
