Taanit 18

In today’s Daf Yomi page, a meditation on war and vengeance

November 30, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Taanit 18, kicks things off with a story of a vanquished enemy of the Jews, the general Nicanor, and his brutal end. Jonathan Schanzer, vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and the author of a new book about Israel’s 2021 conflict with Hamas, joins us to talk about war, moral obligations, and Israel’s military and political choices. Why so much criticism of the Jewish state in the international press? Listen and find out.
