Our bodies, ourselves
In today’s Talmud page, Kiddushin 37, we begin with a discussion of mitzvot that require one to be in the land of Israel. But rather than focus specifically on this page, today and all this week we will be celebrating a few milestones. We will be celebrating the new Jewish year, 5784, our reaching the middle page of the Talmud—that’s right we have hit the midpoint of this journey—and finally the upcoming publication of Liel’s book How the Talmud Can Change Your Life: Surprisingly Modern Advice from a Very Old Book. Today we focus on the most basic topic, that of our bodies. Even the great Rabbi Hillel teaches us about the importance of taking care of even the most basic of our body’s needs to ensure that our body doesn’t break down. What can we learn about how caring for our bodies can lead to a more spiritual experience? Listen and find out.
In celebration of all of these milestones, we invite you to preorder the new book now. You can do it through your local bookstore, directly from the publisher, or wherever you get your favorite books. Once you’ve preordered the book, take a picture of your receipt and visit https://tabletm.ag/preorder and complete the form and upload a copy of your receipt. Once we have your email address, you will be invited to a virtual event, and be eligible to receive one of 10 special packages, hand-curated by Liel, that will make your Jewish journey more meaningful, beautiful, and yeah, why not, fun.
