Take One

Nazir 44

In today’s Talmud page, Judaism and ... horror?

March 8, 2023

Today’s Talmud page, Nazir 44, kicks things off with a gruesome account of body parts and their proper burial. Author Gavriel Savit joins us to explain Judaism’s attitude to the macabre, and why being clear-eyed about death, terror, and other necessary evils is a key to the good life. Why was life so much better when we kept animals around? Listen and find out.
