With Rabbi Shira Gluck
In our traditional reading for Yom Kippur afternoon, the prophet Jonah is consumed by the effort to bring others to atonement. But Jonah doesn’t necessarily strike the reader as a pious individual. However, when he is swallowed by a great fish and fears death, he utters a prayer to God. Join Rabbi Shira Gluck as we take a close look at the second chapter of Jonah and explore the nature of his supplication. Is it a calculated move to escape danger, or a genuine moment of prayer?
