Description

The troubling story of death of 42 boys through the bears that Elisha summoned from the woods after they mocked him, and after the miracle he performed in Yericho. How can this story be understood? Why did Elisha sweeten the water with salt? Why did the youth mock him and why did Elisha respond so forcefully? What are the lessons for today? Delivered in Hebrew for the Modiin Community Kollel.
