Take One

Bava Kama 22 and 23

Watch your back

November 24, 2023

Today’s Talmud pages, Bava Kama 22 and 23, tell the odd story that if one incites an animal to attack, they are exempt from punishment, and instead the person who owns the animal is liable. To see how this type of obfuscation of responsibility goes far beyond that of family pets, we welcome back Tevi Troy who shares how this type of misdirection of responsibility historically took place in the White House, from the Nixon administration to the Reagan administration and through to today. What did Henry Kissinger leak to the press? Listen and find out.
