Unfortunately, the Jonah story, as related in the Bible, often
gets swallowed up by the appearance of a whale. It’s time to move beyond the tale (no pun intended) because, in fact, the Jonah narrative stands out as one of the most powerful insights into human nature and the quest for human understanding. Its message is universal.
All are welcome. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
