The border is what people can see and perceive of me. I’m defined and defended by my borders, but this are also what allows me to communicate with the world around me. We’ll explore the Talmudic story of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochay as it appears in TB Tractate Shabat, and see how a story that was written 2000 years ago tells us so much still today. A story of hiding and revealing, undressing and wearing clothes, a story of inside and outside, and – most important – the story of how cool it is to change your mind!!
