Title: Ego, Humility and the Distortion of Judaism
Description: An ethical-literary reading of a rarely read but fascinating Haftara, Kings 2 Chapter 5, tells the tale of a Naaman, the leprous Aramean general, who is healed by Elisha and becomes a devoted monotheist. On the way, we learn a great deal about the true balances of ego, pride, and religion.
