  1. We read the book of Yonah each year during minchah on Yom Kippur. What do we learn anew in that yearly accounting of the story?
  2. How might we construct a personal practice of gratitude?
    How is gratitude connected to the recitation of blessings?
  3. What do we learn about the complex role of the prophet from reading Yonah?
  4. The story is mythic in proportion and fabulous in imagination. How do we understand it in terms of rational thought, free will, and the capacity to make choices?
  5. Is there a cost to withholding forgiveness? And if so, what is it?
