Take One

Nedarim 19 and 20

In today’s Talmud pages, living life explicitly

November 14, 2022

Today’s Talmud pages, Nedarim 19 and 20, suggest that nothing we do really has any meaning unless we do it explicitly, intentionally, and mindfully. The late Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has a few moving thoughts about this very question, reminding us that life is about much more than happenstance. How does prayer give life meaning? Listen and find out.
