The Large Luminaries (Bereishis)


Besides for the words ex nihilo and firmament, my next favorite English-translated word in the book of Genesis (also, a great word) is luminaries. In this week's episode of The Torah Sparks Podcast, we discuss a masterful idea from the Ibn Ezra who explains how the moon is indeed "larger" than the stars, contrary to what astronomers like yourself might have thought.
