Exploring Selections from Qohelet (Ecclesiastes) with Rabbi Rob Toren
“Qohelet is in some ways the most peculiar book of the Hebrew Bible (TaNaKh),” observes Robert Alter. Controversial, at times internally contradictory, bordering on heresy, the Talmudic Sages nonetheless included it in their canonization of the Hebrew Bible, not without expressed misgivings. With frequent references to the original Hebrew and Robert Alter’s translation (provided), Rabbi Toren will lead an exploration of the many faces of this strange but compelling and important part of our sacred literature.
