Yevamot 115

In today’s Talmud page, the Talmudic wisdom that proved painfully crucial on 9/11

June 30, 2022

Today’s Talmud page, Yevamot 115, asks what to do in case a husband is missing in action and the wife seeks to marry another man. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to talk about Judaism’s approach to agunot, or women left tethered to marriages they cannot annul, and why the Talmud spends so much time exploring the issue, especially when it comes to men missing in a time of war. How did this question come into very practical consideration in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001? Listen and find out.
