Take One

Sotah 35

In today’s Talmud page, truth and slander

May 3, 2023

Today’s Talmud page, Sotah 35, continues the story of the spies who went into the promised land and returned with reports for Moshe about what lies within. As the story retells, two of the spies share that the land is wonderful, and 10 respond that the Israelites will be like ants to the people of the land, and that they should not go in. Tablet Editor-in-Chief Alana Newhouse joins us to share a story of the ways that slander when verbalized, whether true or false, impacts all who are in the vicinity. What should you do with your true feelings without creating a toxic environment? Listen and find out?
