The Quest to Reestablish the Bible’s Sacred Space- Failed Attempts

In being introduced to the character of Abraham, we naturally contrast him with the failed attempt at human edifice-building that was the Tower of Babel. Learn how the lessons of the builders of Babylon, and the call of God to Abraham, help pave the way for the creation of the covenantal family. This is part 3 of a 12-part series sponsored in memory of Ellen Goodstein Koplow and Joan Silverstein Meyers. To access the full series, please go to www.drisha.org/sacredspace.
