Wednesday Morning Adult Education

A MODERN UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIBLE
“Ezekiel, Man of Spectacular Visions”

Instructor: Rabbi David L. Blumenfeld

The Book of Ezekiel is easily one of the most imaginative, original works in the entire Tanach. It envisions Jewish “Merkavah” mysticism, the “end-of-days” war between Gog and Magog, and “dry bones” that will rise again. Learners of all backgrounds are welcome to join in a fascinating session.

All are welcome. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
