Season Three continues with Lesson Nine: The Blue Thread
A History of Techelet
The Torah tells us to include a blue thread in the tzitzit. What is that thread all about, and why do most men wear tzitzit with only white threads? This lesson tells the history of techelet and the fascinating scientific quest to identify the species used in making it.
The JLI Torah Studies program brings a series of text and discussion based classes weekly – each delving further into the parshah. The lessons will challenge and engage you intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally, while exploring contemporary issues through a Torah perspective. Each class stands on its own individual session, focusing on a single parshah and concept, so attendance to all the classes is not mandatory. The classes are free with an optional text book for $20.
