THURSDAY

8:30 am - Kings 1 - In Person Only 
Dr. Shera Aranoff Tuchman - (For Women Only, email riva@ckj.org for class location)

The ongoing study of biblical women begins with 1 Kings, with the frail and aged King David on his deathbed. Even his dying days are turbulent as his son, Adoniyahu, tries to wrest the crown from his father. Two women hold sway over the king’s final days—Bat-Sheva, now his long-time Queen, who is determined to have her son, Solomon, succeed as King, and the king’s attendant, Avishag Hashunamit. We will continue with King Solomon who sets a prime example.  Can we glean wisdom from the life and loves of the wisest of men, Solomon, so that we, as Jews, will continue, as Jews, for thousands of years into the future. Hopefully, studying through the lens of ancient and modern traditional commentaries will give us a clue. 

7:00 pm - Meaningful Jewish Living - ZOOM
