Hold onto your symbological caps, in this episode of the Artifact Podcast, we look at how the menorah (the seven-branch Temple candelabrum) became a meme... and a metaphor... and we place the menorah metaphor in the flow of mind. Btw there are 4 minutes of out-takes at the end which Meir-Simchah finds hilarious.

My guest this week is Meir-Simchah. Meir-Simchah Panzer lives in Jerusalem with his wife and their four children. He co-hosts the podcasts Two Christians And A Jew, with Frank M. Taylor and Dr. Jennifer Brown Jones, where the team dives into how Christians and Jews read the Hebrew Scriptures differently and what difference it makes for our lives, and the Artifact Podcast with Nachliel Selavan where ordinary objects become portals into the history, ideas, and existential mystery behind them. Formerly, he co-hosted Holy Madness – The Show, with Tzvi Zucker. Meir-Simchah is a student of Rabbi Matis Weinberg. He is a co-founder and executive at Ohalecha Arts and Events Center; he writes essays, poems, and stories; and he teaches the Hebrew language and Hebrew Scriptures for individuals and groups. Meir and I discuss his work on Two Christians and Jew, how he interacts with the Christians, what he actually thinks about Jesus and the NT, and the influence of secular Judaism on secular humanism.

Prof. Carmen Joy Imes joins us to delve into the idea of being created "in the image of God." What's that mean? Who exactly is in God's image? Did we lose it with the "fall"? Does it have moral and ethnical ramifications for us today? Do some traditional understandings of being "in the image" exclude people with various disabilities? Is Adam whose name means earth more akin to God or to earth? Also a magical creature, a wild etymological adventure, and some thoughts about how we evaluate traditional interpretations. Catch Prof. Carmen Imes on her (YouTube channel), on her (blog), read her books ( (Carmen on Amazon), (Carmen on Goodreads)), and follow her on (Twitter).
