Isaiah the Prophet: Seer and Prophet for His Time

During the weekend we will study Isaiah, what we know about him (all three of him?) and his era, what he tells us about the prophet’s call to prophesy, about worshipping God, about the Sabbath, and about hope for the future. We will also look at how Isaiah’s writings have been used in Jewish liturgy and worship and how Jews read the ‘suffering servant’ chapters.

Rabbi Rachel Montagu studied for rabbinic ordination at Leo Baeck College, London and Machon Pardes, Jerusalem. She has an MA in Biblical Studies from Heythrop College and teaches Biblical Hebrew at City Lit, Ealing Abbey and the Sion Centre for Dialogue and Encounter.

Led by: Rabbi Rachel Montagu

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
