    Adult Ed - Will the Real King David Please Stand Up

    Tuesday, Nov 27th 7:00p to 8:15p
    Rabbi Kieffer will continue to dig deep into Biblical texts to discover insights and lessons that are often missing or overlooked. Most of the stories about King David are found in the Book of Samuel or the Book of Chronicles ( known in Hebrew as Divray HaYamim), and those two sources give us very different impressions of the character of King David. We will be exploring both. Instructor: Rabbi Sam Kieffer Meet: Tuesday Evenings Time: 7:00PM-8:15PM Dates: Oct. 16, 23, 30 Nov. 13, 20, 27 Fee: $25 Member / $36 Non-Member
