Extraordinary Passages: Journey into the Unknown

Jonah, A Story of Many Journeys: What does it mean to set out on a journey without knowing the destination? Meet Abram (Abraham) who is commanded to "go forth!" and does just that. We will explore what this passage of the Bible may reveal about journeys and progress.


Rabbi Sylvin Wolf , a resident of The Coves and former Rabbi of the Naples Jewish Congregation, presents a six session course called  "Extraordinary Passages"  which explores various journeys from biblical times to the present, including our own individual journey.
