  Jonah: The Reluctant Prophet  
 

Jonah was swallowed by a whale. What’s the big deal?

Page for page, the story of Jonah packs more imagery, poetry, ethical dilemmas, and intriguing concepts into its brief text than any other book in the Hebrew bible.

No wonder we read it as part of our Yom Kippur services! In this class, we translate and discuss the entire text of Jonah. We will investigate its background within Biblical and ancient Near Eastern literature and history, and we will consider its meaning for our own time.

Offered as part of Advanced Biblical Hebrew or as a separate course.
Course conducted mainly in English, with some Hebrew.
