March: Ecclesiastes and the Good Life
March 10 - 31, 2020—Tuesdays @ 1 p.m. ET
The book of Ecclesiastes offers the Bible’s most unique analysis of the challenges and opportunities of life. We see Qohelet (the main person in the book) as a man on a quest, a sharp observer, and finally a thinker nearing the end of his life. He records his observations about the human experience and offers us a surprising prescription for living the good life. Using his own translation, Rabbi Kinbar will lead studies of four main themes of Ecclesiastes that contribute to a life that is both good and joyous. A portion of each session will be devoted to your questions and comments.
