Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Proximity and Purity, Episode 61

Proximity and Purity recorded at Hadar in New York with special guest Dena Weiss is Episode 61 of A Dash of Drash.

It is too easy to dismiss the details of these priestly rituals as alien relics of an ancient world. Dena Weiss, head of the Beit Midrash (House of Study) at Hadar in New York, in conversation with Rabbi Marc, shares some provocative insights on contemporary resonances of the themes of the sacrificial cult and its relevance to our modern lives
