Learning Happy Hour
Get Prophetic With It! Haftarah Toldot, Malachi, and Other Prophet Randos
Location: Monika's Cafe/Bar
(32-90 36th St, Astoria, NY 11106)
Date: November 15th
*Monika's happy hour ends at 7.
While most haftarot come from the prophetic big three of Isaiah, Ezekiel and Jeremiah, occasionally a parsha will include an excerpt from one of the lesser-known prophets. Parsha Toldot includes a reading from the book of Malachi--not a super familiar name to most non-bible nerds. We'll explore the idea of the haftarot as a kind of scriptural playlist to accompany the torah readings and what fun gems we might discover if we give other prophets like Joel, Amos, and Zephaniah a bit more love. Email Lisa Huberman if you plan on attending. Facebook invite coming soon!
