The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; The God of glory thundereth, Even the Lord upon many waters. The Unique Roles of Water in the Tanach (EN) #129.06.2022 - 14:00 / JCC Krakow, Miodowa 24
The first of two lectures will survey the usage of water in the Tanach from the very first heavenly waters to the destructive force of the flood waters to the location of the land of Israel as between the Jordan river and ‘the great sea’. We will discover various purposes of water in Tanach, sometimes used to give life, other times to destroy, sometimes a curse, and other times a blessing. Water is so fundamental in the Torah and in our lives that special blessings are recited and special laws govern its mentioning in prayers.
