This week on LandMinds - April 27, 2011. "Astro Tom " Rosenfeld has made it his passion to learn about the heavens. As a licensed tour guide, computer engineer, and amateur astronomer, he brings a wealth of knowledge and helps us to understand the Jewish view of the heavens. When it's over, you'll want to head outside and check out the Big Dipper, Arcturus, and Saturn in our night sky. Barnea's on tour this week, so Tom came into our A7 studio-south - and the result is certain to illuminate. Check out his website - The Astronomer's Wife and if you like the topic, take a gaze at the Israeli New Moon Society site. Share his enthusiasm in this timely and light interview. In our final segment, we feature a surprise interview and a special "afikomen " Passover song - enjoy!
