Take One

Bava Metzia 78

Making the private public with Tevi Troy

May 16, 2024

Today’s Talmud page, Bava Metzia 78, introduces us to a new word—angaria, a term used to describe a situation in which the government has the right to seize property for public service. Tevi Troy returns to the show to discuss a personal experience with eminent domain. Is eminent domain the modern version of angaria? Listen and find out.

This episode is in memory of Bernard Dov Troy—Dov Moshe ben Tuviah.
