Take One

Ketubot 11 and 12

In today’s Talmud pages, getting to know your date

July 18, 2022

Today’s Talmud pages, Ketubot 11 and 12, tell us that it’s ancient Jewish custom to insist that a bride and a groom take a moment, before stepping under the wedding canopy, to get to know each other. Kylie Unell joins us to parse the wisdom of this tradition, and explain why getting to know the person you’re dating is no easier today than it was in Talmudic times. What constituted small talk back then? Listen and find out.
