"The Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah: Two Sophisticated and Innovative Thinkers" focus of adult education classes in February
“The Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah: Two Sophisticated and Innovative Thinkers,” will be offered at Temple Beth Shalom of the West Valley, 12202 N. 101st Ave. in Sun City, from 10-11 a.m. Thursdays, Feb. 8, 15, 22 and 29.
Led by Rabbi Dana Evan Kaplan, the course is designed for all people of faith who are interested in studying the Book of Prophets. In ancient Judea 2,500 years ago, Jeremiah and Isaiah advised kings and priests on how to understand justice and ethics.
“We will be telling the story of not only Isaiah and Jeremiah but their entire generations and how they dealt with a very dangerous world and very threatening neighbors. Both were sophisticated and innovative thinkers who took ideas emanating from the imperial centers of their time and fused them with their own traditions, creating a new ethical approach to Judaism,” Kaplan explained.
Cost is $20 for members and $35 for non-members. Call the Temple office to register and pay for the course from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Registration deadline is noon Feb. 6.
