Take One

Ketubot 72 and 73

In today’s Talmud pages, preparation for death

September 16, 2022

Today’s Talmud pages, Ketubot 72 and 73, teach us a lesson in preparing for the inevitable end. Writer Rodger Kamenetz joins us to read two of his poems from his latest collection, The Missing Jew, and meditate on how we ought to think about our own death and other profound mysteries of existence. If a boy is born with two heads, on which one should he wear his kippah? Listen and find out.
