Take One

Bava Kama 10 and 11

The characteristics of goodness always outweigh the characteristics of negativity

November 13, 2023

Today’s Talmud pages, Bava Kama 10 and 11, explain that if a person deepens a hole making it more dangerous than it had been, they are now solely responsible for the damage that it can cause. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin returns to explain how this idea that we can be made responsible for the full damage of contributing to an action can be turned on its head, and thus enabling one to take full credit for enabling others to perform a mitzvah. How does this page of Talmud connect to an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm? Listen and find out.
