Are you feeling frustrated and saddened by the current political climate? There is nothing new under the sun. Jews have been dealing with cruelty and hatred for millennia.

One such work that deals with this problem is called Fourth Ezra. Written in the aftermath of the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 CE, 4th Ezra helps give Jews the strength to carry on by drawing on angels, dream visions, and the Book of Daniel.

Learn with Dr. Naomi S S Jacobs on September 19 and 26, 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Bonai.
Suggested donation: $10 – $15 per class or both sessions for $18.
