  Children of Prophets  

B'nai Nevi'im: Children of Prophets Chavurah
(Formerly Maimonides Chavurah Group)

Held on the following Wednesdays at 8:00 PM:
April 26

We have now embarked on a journey through the Former Prophets—as depicted in the books of First and Second Samuel, and First and Second Kings–featuring the likes of the prophets Samuel, Nathan, Elijah, Elisha, and others—not to mention King Saul, King David, King Solomon, and their royal descendants, right down to the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE. These often obscure books of the Bible offer a fascinating glimpse into the early history of Israel, and the complex and harrowing history through which we were guided by both Prophet and King, dozens of centuries before our own complex era.

“Even if they [Israel] are not prophetsthey are [nevertheless] the children of prophets” (Babylonian Talmud, Pesachim 66b).
