Nevi'im (The Prophets): A New Series of Classes

We have begun a NEW series of classes about Nevi'im ... The Prophets on Zoom.

Part I focuses on the “Historical Books” (Joshua, Judges, I Samuel, II Samuel, I Kings, II Kings). We expect to explore the Other Books (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and the "Minor Prophets") later this year.  
 
Each session will feature a "Class Gabbai" who will provide a brief introduction and then be available during our class discussion. We encourage participants to read the text before each class.


We are meeting on Zoom as follows:
• Thursday, 3/2, 12-1 p.m. – Joshua, Chapters 13-24 (Class Gabbai - George Franklin)
• Thursday, 3/16 & 3/30, 12-1 p.m. - Judges (Class Gabbai - Rabbi Rachel Gartner)
• TUESDAY, 4/11 & 4/25, 12-1 p.m. - I Samuel (Class Gabbai - Gideon Amir)
• Thursday, 5/18 & 5/25, 12-1 p.m. - II Samuel (Class Gabbai - Rabbi Gerry Serotta)
• Thursday, 6/8 & 6/29 (new date), 12-1 p.m. - I Kings (Class Gabbai - Nan Wellins)
• Thursday, 7/6 & 7/20, 12-1 p.m.- II Kings (Class Gabbai - Heidi Coleman)

There is no fee for members of Shirat HaNefesh. For non-members, we request a donation of $54 for Part I of this series.
