Take One

Ketubot 15

In today’s Talmud page, majority rules

July 21, 2022

Today’s Talmud page, Ketubot 15, spices things up with a Solomonic story of what to do if an abandoned baby is found and no one knows whether or not the infant is Jewish. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to explain why this anecdote illustrates Judaism’s commitment not only to abstract ideas but to lived-in practices. Why did a great rabbi walk around the streets of postwar Europe mumbling the first lines of the Shema prayer? Listen and find out.
