Yom Kippur 5782 – Who is the Hero of the Jonah Story?
In this podcast, Aviva Lauer explores the Book of Jonah, read on the afternoon of Yom Kippur, in an effort to understand what message we are meant to take from it on this special day. Naming Jonah (under the influence of his midrashic mentor, Elijah the Prophet) the antihero of the story, as opposed to its hero, Lauer searches for the real hero of the story – one that fits the themes of the Day of Repentance.
This podcast is sponsored by Linda A. and Steven Hurwitz in honor of all that PARDES gives our people as we enhance and enrich our passion and purpose.
