What’s in a Name: Exploring Biblical Characters through the Meaning of their Names
Hosted By: My Jewish Learning
In this 3-part series with My Jewish Learning, Rabbi Hayim Herring will examine biblical characters through the lens of their Hebrew names. The act of naming people and other living beings in the Bible is intentional, and highly significant: a name can express a person’s destiny or reveal something about their identity. By unearthing the dimensions of Biblical characters’ names, we’ll explore how these characters grow into, or out of, their names and how these names shed light on their identities and relationships.
