Nedarim 28

In today’s Talmud page, that famous pound of flesh, explained

November 22, 2022

Today’s Talmud page, Nedarim 28, brings up an interesting question: What to do with vows taken under duress? Shakespeare scholar Dr. Shaina Trapedo joins us to explain how this very point lies at the heart of The Merchant of Venice, and how it makes the Bard’s play deeper. Why did a recent theater production include the text to the seminal Yom Kippur prayer, Kol Nidre? Listen and find out.
