In last week’s episode, which this post is associated with, Terry and I discuss semiotics and rehash the basics of it from our individual perspectives. We both bring up semiotics from a philosophical and religious perspective, which is similar yet different from secular semiotics.
In this week’s SemioBytes episode, Terry and I (very) briefly discuss Kabbalah. I have written on Kabbalah on YidBrik and even published an essay with field research on the topic. Additionally, I host a podcast about Kabbalah from my Orthodox Chassidic-Yeshivish approach.

This new group is for individuals 27-32 years old. More information is available on Birthright’s website.Read More »My Trip to Israel in the Summer of 2018
In this episode, Terry leads with a conversation regarding science, religion, philosophy, and the signs of the end times. This longer episode connects directly with Terry’s dissertation and brings to point a conversation about what are we doing, as Jews and Christians, to help or hinder tikkun olam and prepare for a “messianic” era.Read More »“The End” & Tikkun Olam
