“What is the meaning of this?”
As Jews we are surrounded by words and symbols with deep, rich meanings that too often go unnoticed or misunderstood. The Jewish Star: What does it mean? The Ner Tamid: What’s it’s history? The Shema: Where did it come from? The Mezuzah: What’s inside it? The Tree of Life: Where does it grow? In this Guitorah discussion series Yuval’s songs and observations are informed by such excellent resources as These Are The Words by Arthur Green; God Is A Verb by Rabbi David Cooper; Jewish Literacy by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin; The Jewish Book of Why, by Alfred J. Kolatch; The Five Books of Miriam by Ellen Frankel; numerous wonderful teachers. And, of course, the Torah itself.
