Tzav and Purim - secret of seventy

What is the concept of seventy and seven? What is the significance of the seventy years between the two temples? Why is the gematria of wine (יין) and secret (סוד) both seventy? What is the depth of the idea of the seventy nations and the seventy offspring of Yakov? Why does the story climax with the fifty cubit high gallows of Haman? Why are there seven days of the Santuary's inauguration, and why are they in Adar?

Find out in this week's Parsha Podcast.

This was great, Ari. I had just read much of this over at Shirat Devorah's site... so it was good to hear twice in one day.

Love your teachings and although I am a Christian, I can learn so much about my faith with your wisdom.
