Yonah: Its message and significance for our lives.

Sefer Yonah is a small book found in the Twelve Prophets, between Ovadia and Micha. Yet, it is widely considered to be one of the most profound books of Tanach. In the story of one man's flight "from the Presence of the L-rd", an attuned reader will find sublime and intensely personal reflection about the nature of obedience and limits of autonomy, the relations between emotion and intellect, mercy and justice, redemption and repentance and much more.

The lecture series will bring the entire extent of traditional and contemporary scholarship to bear on the message on the Book of Yonah. We will secondarily introduce the reader to the variety of skills that he or she can utilize to investigate other Biblical books. The intent is not to provide passive knowledge but to present each lecture as an example of how to uncover deeper meaning resident in the text and find its application to our lives.
