Two postings from the 929 Tanach study website that were shared this week online in honor of the 4th of July from our own Rabbi Dr. Stu Halpern's latest book, Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land: The Hebrew Bible in the United States, A Sourcebook. The book was released by the Zahava and Moshael J. Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University, dedicated by our dear friends, supporters, and community leaders, Zahava and Moshael Straus. #EngleNachas
