By the Rivers of Babylon with Dr. Filip Vukosavović
Dovid & Barnea are back in 5776 - hosting a new LandMinds podcast (with video and pix!). In this session we discuss the Jewish community that emerged in Babylon following the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem. Sit back for an in-depth, hour-long interview with Dr. Filip Vukosavović - curator of the “By the Rivers of Babylon” exhibit at the Bible Lands Museum. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we did making it! It’s 64mins - but well worth it!

Dovid & Barnea are back in the saddle hosting a new LandMinds podcast. In this session we discuss issues related to the Sefirat HaOmer Period (the weeks counted between Passover and Shavuot). We cover a wide range - from the Biblical commandment, the Kabbalistic component - and finally the Bar Kochva Revolt and the students of Rabbi Akiva. It’s a far-ranging session and we invite your comments.

Next month - Join us for LandMinds Live! as we broadcast a new show live via Google Stream.
The show will be made available as a podcast - but our live show allows for your phone calls and participation!
Details will be posted on the LandMinds Facebook page.
