Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Yevamot 47, 48, and 49, tell a story of a beautiful woman taken captive by Jewish warriors. Rabbi Sari Laufer joins us to talk about the prisoner’s plight, and why the Talmud’s particular guidelines award her a touch of agency in dark times. Why must the beautiful woman make herself repulsive? Listen and find out.
