Haftarah Plethora
This week the boys step up to read and discuss the entire Book of Ovadia, all one chapter and 21 verses of it. Larry offers a theory about Ovadia and the polemical nature of the book while Rick makes fun of Larry’s pronunciation of haftarah/haftorah/haftoira (he also chants the haftarah).
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on December 5th with Howard Fredman.
