Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Towers in the Sky, Episode 78

Towers in the Sky with Special Guest Dr. Michael Kagan in Jerusalem is Episode 78 of A Dash of Drash.
The stories in Genesis are full of depth, mystery and profound lessons for each generation. Parshat Noah begins with the story of the catastrophic flood (Chapter 6) and ends with tale of The Tower of Babel (Chapter 11). In our conversation about this building project, Michael Kagan, a friend and teacher in Jerusalem, shares some deep insights on this narrative and its commentary on human civilization. Apologies if the sound quality is not as good as usual. We had some technical challenges!

Thanks for listening with a generous heart and sharing with others!
