Monday Midrasha: The Messiah is Coming!

November 30, 2015 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Mondays at 7:00 p.m., November 9, 16, 23, 30 and December 7

Over the centuries, this very Jewish idea has inspired a number of people to claim the mantel and many others to scoff at the idea.  Our series will consider the provocative history of the concept and look at some of the individuals that inspired movements and challenged authority.  From Jesus and Bar Kochba to Jacob Frank and Shabbetai Zvi to the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the story is rich and controversial.  Join Rabbi Prosnit as we seek the Messiah.
