Part 2 is here! How to Live like Ancient Jewish Shepherds on Ass Avenue

Adventure Family goes back in time to experience the history and day-to-day activities of ancient shepherds from what they wore, milking goats, making fresh food in the wilderness, riding donkeys and sending messages home with pigeons. But we also learn heart lessons from our wonderful host, Menachem Goldberg, about leadership and the value of knowing where you’ve come from to know where to go.
