  • The Forgotten Bible
    The Hebrew Bible may be the most read book on earth, but Jews generally confine their knowledge of this seminal collection to the Torah and Haftarot read each week, the Psalms included in the liturgy, and the five other megillot (scrolls) read at different holidays. But the Bible contains whole books like Daniel, Ezra, and Nehemiah, which tend to get ignored but contain much wisdom relevant to modern life. Join us as we delve into these “forgotten” books.
