Ecclesiastes is meant to confront the reader with core questions about the meaning of both man and God. This course, based on Rabbi Segal’s Kohelet’s Pursuit of Truth: A New Reading of Ecclesiastes, will explore major questions raised about growth, change, age, doubt, truth, optimism-and-pessimism, et al. Participants must read the first 100 pages of the commentary prior to taking the class.
