The word midbar means desert, and its root d-b-r (in Hebrew) means word. What does one have to do with the other? In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger discusses this question and, by doing so, examines how this experience was so critical in enabling the Jewish people to take on their role of being a “kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”
This week’s podcast is generously sponsored by the Lee and Jerry Zoldan Charitable Foundation in honor of Rabbi Meir Schweiger.
