MON 10/14: Haftarah Class

10/14/19 - 3:30 PM - SJC Building

Haftarah classes resume on Oct. 14 at 3:30 p.m. This session will focus on Sukkot, First Day-Zechariah 14:1-21.
From the end of the Babylonian Exile and the rebuilding of the Second Temple comes another extraordinary prophecy from Zechariah. The Prophet intertwines his joy at the Return with a vision of the world to come. Who was Zechariah? What is the historical background of this Haftarah? What sense can we make of the poetic imagery? What are the thematic and textual connections that make this Haftarah so appropriate for the pilgrimage festival of Sukkot?
