Take One

Yevamot 109 and 110

In today’s Talmud pages, the body and the soul have it out

June 24, 2022

Today’s Talmud pages, Yevamot 109 and 110, teach us that even a life of studying Torah nonstop is meaningless unless one also commits oneself to the mitzvot, or righteous deeds. Rabbi Mordechai Lightstone joins us to talk about Judaism’s attitude to the relationship between body and soul, and explain why real sanctity is impossible unless it’s embodied in deed as well as spirit. Why did the High Priest in the ancient Temple have to be married to serve in his exalted role? Listen and find out.
