Take One

Yevamot 111 and 112

In today’s Talmud pages, on abilities and disabilities

June 27, 2022

Today’s Talmud pages, Yevamot 111 and 112, have the rabbis asking whether a person who can neither hear nor speak is capable of cognition. Rabbi Lauren Tuchman, the first blind person to be ordained as a rabbi, joins us to talk about Judaism’s idea of da’at, or reason, and how the rabbis viewed the mental state of people with disabilities. Why does the Talmud differentiate between the blind and the deaf-mute? Listen and find out.
