Jews read this Biblical book on Yom Kippur. The Mishnah teaches “May God who answered Jonah from the midst of the whale, answer us and hear our voice today.”

  • What is the message of Jonah?
  • What is the significance of it emanating from a whale?
  • Why is it read on Yom Kippur?
  • And what is the message for this year of the Covid 19 pandemic?

Join us for this lunch and learn seminar where we will do a close reading of this holy text.

Rabbi Elliot Salo Schoenberg is the Interim Rabbi of The Jewish Center.
