<h2><strong>Interview with Israeli Biblical Tour Guide Shlomo Ben David who was born and raised as a very young child in southern Iraq, as part of a family that lived in and took care of a historical compound that is the Tomb of Ezekiel.</strong></h2>
On this episode of Torah on Location, we conduct an interview <strong>(PART 2)</strong> with Israeli biblical tour guide <strong>Shlomo Ben David</strong>, a close family member to international Israeli author <strong>Eli Amir</strong> who wrote <em><strong>The Dove Flyer,</strong></em> which was made into a feature film <em><strong>Farewell Baghdad</strong></em>, about the Jewish community in Iraq in the 1950s.
Shlomo, using the eloquence and knowledge of his “mother tongue” of Hebrew, opens up some deeper meanings of biblical Hebrew – the language of the prophets of Israel. Shlomo will present to us an introduction to some root structures for a better understanding of the concept of “Bavel” or Babylon. Also, Shlomo will touch on the differences between signs and letters in Hebrew. Signs are not necessarily letters but letters can be signs. Biblical Hebrew is from Heaven and when Elohim established the creation, Shlomo believes that everything was done through Hebrew as a kind of divine consciousness – one letter to another as it can be seen through biblical passages like Jeremiah 8:20.
This program will continue with PART 3 and will deal with more depth.
