WHAT IS WISDOM?
The Book of Proverbs
Tuesdays - October 28 & November 4
7:00 PM
Instructor: Rabbi David Eligberg

Is it intelligence or good sense? Is it sound judgment or moral understanding? Is it the ability to consider the profounder problems of human existence and fate? Does wisdom emerge from the continuing quest for the meaning of human experience; of life and religion? What is articulated in the wisdom literature in the Tanach (Bible) is unique in its intellectual penetration, ethical awareness, and religious spirit.

The Book of Proverbs presents statements and maxims meant to guide readers to living one's life wisely yet it remains unconcerned with Israelite ritual life such as Temple worship and sacrifice. While Proverbs does not offer a systematic presentation of Israelite or principles, Proverbs does convey a clear view of doctrines, such as reward and punishment, and their connection to GOD.
