Leaders & Speakers: 
Miriam Krupka

Dr. Miriam Krupka offers a two-part overview of the millenium of prophetic dialogue: What was its purpose? How did prophets function in the greater political environment? What were the basic rules surrounding how they communicated? Sources will include a number of rich excerpts from Tanakh, as well as a close look at the Abarbanel, the Malbim, and Abraham Joshua Heschel's perspectives on prophecy, how and why prophecy failed (or did it?), as well as a deeper look into how Tanakh deals with communication and language in general.
