Prophets were social and political change-makers and theological mavericks. They offered bold responses to grave challenges that enabled their communities to survive crisis and that paved the way for Judaism. This session explores how prophets Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Isaiah offered innovation in the face of destruction.  

With Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky, Dean of Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies and the Gershon Kekst Graduate School and Blanche and Romie Shapiro Professor of Bible, JTS.
