Discussion Guide: Lessons from the Book of Yonah

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, September 2012

Sh'ma offers its readers questions to delve further into the ideas discussed in this issue. Including: We read the book of Yonah (Jonah) each year during minchah on Yom Kippur--what do we learn anew in that yearly accounting of the story? How might we construct a personal practice of gratitude? What do we learn about the complex role of the prophet from reading Yonah? Is there a cost to withholding forgiveness? And if so, what is it?
