Classes at Congregation Eitz Chayim
Four part series looking at Hannah’s story in the haftarah for the first day of Rosh Hashanah.
Hannah was a remarkably independent biblical woman who was among a small and elite group of women who were called prophets in the Jewish tradition. She was barren until her prayers were answered and she gave birth to Samuel. Her story has resounding relevance to Jews of every age.
