In this episode of the 18Forty Podcast, host David Bashevkin talks to Malka Simkovich about Second Temple Judaism and how it can help us understand what it means to be a Jew in our own time.
They explore the significance of belief and observance over the history of the Jewish people:
- What is the role of mystery in how we understand covenant and chosenness?
- What is the relationship between religious life in the ancient world and the Jewish practice we know today?
- How does belief facilitate the continuity of the Jewish tradition throughout time?
