Lag BaOmer - The Danger of Crazy Eyes (Rivka's Take)

We started off with a rather tame description of the origins of Lag BaOmer, going into the two stories that were the origins of the day. We then take one detail of the story of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai and develop it to show a deep insight into our human condition. Ever met someone so taken by an idea that no other approach has room? Join us as we unpack this scenario through the lens of one of the biggest sages of all time.
