Yonah vs. God: A Prophetic Polemic?
Rabbi Yitzchak Etshalom / October 10, 2016
This unmatched prophetic novella tells the story of a prophet fleeing his mission and God’s presence. This confounding behavior is difficult enough to understand – but why is this the last public reading of the season of introspection? This shiur will address Sefer Yonah both textually and liturgically.
