Elijah is a central figure in the Book of Kings, but the mythology and legends surrounding his life extend way beyond those of any other biblical prophet. We will start with the biblical texts describing Elijah’s life’s work, and then explore the developing sources that bring him to our Passover seder, brit milah ceremonies, and  even Camden Yards.

Presented by the Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies.

STEVE KERBEL is an independent education consultant in the Greater Washington DC area, and has been involved in Jewish education for the last 30 years. Steve is a consultant and project director for the Center for Israel Education at Emory University in Atlanta. Steve serves as National President of the Jewish Educators Assembly. In what seems like a different lifetime, Steve earned a law degree and was in the private practice of law for eight years. Among Steve’s avocations, he facilitates wine tastings featuring Israeli wines and teaches about the geography of Israel through its wines and wine maker.
