We will consider the Letter of Aristeas, written in the second century BCE, which describes, in detail, the city of Jerusalem including its walls. Time permitting, we will study the verses related to Hag HaMazoth, in preparation for the upcoming holiday which begins this Wednesday night into Thursday according to the Karaites.
