Hamesh Megillot – The Five Festival Scrolls from the Bible
Facilitator: Rabbi David B. Cohen
We will study the five scrolls, Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs) sung at Passover, Rut (Ruth) sound at Shavuot, Lamentations (Aicha) sung at Tisha B’Av, Ecclesiastes (Kohellet) sung at Sukkot, and Esther, sung at Purim. Join us for a fast paced sixty minutes of learning and discussion. We will study the books in the order they appear on the Holy Day calendar, so that it will be an opportunity to prepare educationally and spiritually for the days.
