This sacred scroll consists of the primary records of the relationship of Jews with God and the covenant hence established. Three special Sabbaths take place before Passover. We will be discussing the era of the Kings that ruled both Israel and Judea, until their obliteration (Israel) and destruction (Judea), and the belief system that they took with them into the Exile to Babylon.
