Yoel ben Shlomo – Light of the Prophets – 1 Samuel 9:25-10:27 & Should Women Wear Tzit Tzit?

Why was Saul anointed from a clay flask and not a horn like David? Where is Rachel’s tomb? Why was Saul given 2 loaves of bread? What does it mean that Saul was changed into another man and given another heart? Plus, Yoel deals with the question of whether or not women should wear Tzit Tzit.

    Glad to see that you two also survived the “end of the world as we know it”. This was one of your best programs. Well worth the wait.

    Another great talk! I do have a couple of questions:
    How is the change of heart/new heart in this chapter different than the new heart in Ezekiel? Seems like the same thing to me, but is there some textual difference?

    Also, is there any evidence if the phrase “Long live the king” was common in the ancient near east, or was this unique to Israel at this time?

    Thanks so much.

    What an interesting discussion about tzit tzit and the skirt of a garment. I have heard of certain woman wearing them and didn’t think it was required until I heard the true meaning of benai Israel meaning all the children of Israel which includes male and female.
    During the talk of Yoel finding a synagogue that had a picture of a Tree near the Torah scroll, my first thought was perhaps they were trying to represent the Tree of Life rather than an asherah?
    Wow, antelope and now hail-perhaps the critter was running for cover. lol
    Thanks for teaching about the idiom, …gamla(Rope) through the eye of a needle. I was informed about this many years ago but I also thought the camel(also gamla) was very funny.
    What a lively, exciting and informative program today.
    Mazal Tov for the wedding. My prayers go out to you both, Lynn and Yoel’s father.

    Excellent program. Really appreciate the insight about the 4 corners of the garment and the camel – rope insight. Todah!

    The gender issue (i.e. Banei for both men and women) is the same in Spanish, everything has a gender and when refering to both men and women we use masculine to refer/include both genders. 🙂
