Haftarah Class - New Date & Time (moved from 10/10)
Led by Jeffrey Rosen

In order to accommodate additional participants, the classes  have moved from the second Monday of each month at four to the second TUESDAY of each month at 4:15. The class will study the Haftarah which is read on the closest Shabbat following the class. This year’s class will follow the general format of prior years’ classes. The class involves detailed discussion and textual analysis of each of the Haftarot described in English but with occasional reference to the Hebrew .
