Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) is one of the most challenging books in the Tanach – its ideas seem to contradict so much of what we believe, and at times, it seems downright depressing! Yet we read it every Sukkot on the Shabbat of Chol HaMoed. What makes this book so unique? How do we deal with the challenges it poses?
The Academy is proud to host Rabbi Hayyim Angel, National Scholar of the Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals, as he unpacks the uniquely human perspective of this unusual book. Rabbi Angel teaches advanced Bible at Yeshiva University and has published some 20 books, primarily on Tanach and ways of understanding it.
Join Rabbi Hayyim and the Academy for an hour of insight – after all:
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. – Kohelet 3:1
