Take One

Nazir 43

In today’s Talmud page, leading by a nose

March 7, 2023

Today’s Talmud page, Nazir 43, asks the ridiculous question of whether a Nazir can be punished twice if they touch two dead bodies. To further explore how silly the Talmud can sometimes be, and in honor of today’s holiday of Purim, we listen to Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin as he shares the brilliance of comedian Gary Shandling and how his comedy embodies the holiday of Purim. Can the breaking of the fourth wall be a lesson for how we connect to one another and to God? Listen and find out.
