Questions and Conversations: Abe Lebovic on Lag B’omer

Passover is called “Z’man Cheiruteinu,” meaning the festival of freedom. In this spirit, we will study the lives of four central figures within the Passover story: Yocheved (Moses’ mother), Miriam, Batya (Pharaoh’s daughter) and the midwives Shifrah and Puah. Using the Bible, rabbinic sources and contemporary perspectives.

Learn about this holiday that marks the passing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and the roots of Jewish mysticism.
