Let’s Talk Prophets
“Never again did there arise in Israel a prophet like Moses.” Our Torah Scroll ends with the death of Moses and the People of Israel poised to enter the Promised Land. What a classic cliffhanger!
But the story of the Jewish people continues and the book of Nevi’im, or Prophets: For those of you who love a good story, maybe even hero and anti-hero themes, you are in luck as we begin the Book of Samuel.

It is truly amazing that the Divine One has put up with all this!
