Ecclesiastes: Meditating on Futility

Tzvee Zahavy looks here at Ecclesiastes (Qohelet) from a Jewish perspective. Zahavy posits that "Kohelet is a collection of meditative chants on the futility of life, cast in a decidedly Israelite key." And he notes that, "Kohelet’s message is not entirely an expression of futility, for meditating on futility may be the one endeavor the book does not believe to be entirely futile." Some interesting thoughts on a challenging book.
