The purpose of this tour is to give you a sense of the overall tone of Kohelet. Start by taking a look at each of the psukim below. Be sure you know the simple meaning of the pasuk first. Then, for each pasuk consider:
Does this pasuk have an optimistic or pessimistic view of the world? Explain.
Does this pasuk state a Jewish perspective? Explain.
Does this pasuk agree or disagree with the previous psukim? Explain.
Add your thoughts about this into the comment space I have placed after each pasuk. After you have entered your thoughts about a pasuk, please take a look at your classmates thoughts and respond to them as well.
When you have commented on each of the psukim, consider drawing a conclusion about the overall tone and theme of Kohelet and adding your own comment box at the end of the source sheet.
