Honeybees and Torah

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

How are honeybees portrayed in biblical and later Jewish sources? Why is honey kosher? What is the status of other hive products – bee pollen, propolis, royal jelly?

Join Rabba Amalia to discuss this and other issues relating to bees.

This event is at 12 PM MT and 2 PM ET.
