Take One

Yevamot 101

In today’s Talmud page, does having faith require certainty?

June 16, 2022

Today’s Talmud page, Yevamot 101, tells a story about a wayward son as a way of asking a major theological question about doubt, certainty, and their role in the believer’s life. The late Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks addressed this question in one of his memorable talks, and we are privileged to share his insights on the value of radical uncertainty. What is the secret and often misunderstood essence of faith? Listen and find out.

The audio of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks was originally found on The Rabbi Sacks Legacy Trust website.
