Eden & The Land of Israel

Eden & The Land of Israel

What is the connection between the Garden of Eden and the Land of Israel? In this course with Rabbanit Yafit Clymer we will first explore what the Torah says about the garden. Where was it and why was it set apart from everything else? We will then learn about the Land of Israel and how it is juxtaposed to Egypt. Finally, we will see the words of the prophets who deepen the connection between Eden and Israel.
