EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Beit HaBechira. Chapter 7; 13a

Episode #57 — “SACRED SANCTUARY CITIES” Did you know that in Israel of antiquity the term “Holy City” didn’t necessarily refer to Jerusalem, and likely wasn’t a reference to Safed either?! Discover the and ancient conception of sanctuary cities that were deemed to be sacred, and perhaps even more importantly what that meant to its residents on a practical level.

Learn how our Divinely Ordained Holy Land once contained upgraded levels of holiness in specific municipalities that were “Walled into Consecration,” along with fascinating and little-known ritual law that governed when certain city-dwellers might be legally evicted, restricted burial and even the transportation of human remains.
