Thank you Ronni and Erica! You brought me into Jewish culture. In addition to better understanding the culture your discussion reminded me of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Be with him 24-7, following, imitating, learning!
the Temple and synagogue,I also never thought about synagogues being in all the cities/towns. I think I always assumed the rabbis taught outdoors or to a smaller group in someone’s home (that wasn’t identified as a synagogue).
You helped me “be there” in my mind🙂. Thank you!
Thank you, for the insight into the Jewish culture! It is very helpful to hear the two of you discussing these insights. Looking forward to future podcasts!
