Take One

January 13, 2023

Today’s Talmud pages, Nedarim 80 and 81, deliver a strange pronouncement: Torah scholars are almost never the sons of other Torah scholars. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to explain this idea, and how the rabbis excelled in checking their privilege and making sure no one gets an unfair advantage when it comes to studying Torah. Did the Talmud discover the original nepo babies? Listen and find out.
