In the Biblical account of Elijah, he never actually dies – he is taken to heaven in a fiery chariot. This detail has excited the mystical imagination: Since Elijah never died, maybe he wanders among us visiting the poor and performing miracles. He figures in Jewish rituals such as the Passover Seder, circumcision ceremonies, and the Havdalah ceremony marking the end of the Sabbath. In this innovative year long course, the key element will be the Biblical account in Kings 1 & 2, but we will also study Elijah’s significance in Jewish ritual, in Islam, and in Christianity. We will read some of the amazing folk tales about Elijah, as well as Elijah’s appearance in modern fiction and poetry. Who WAS Elijah? And . . . why do we still talk about him?
