Yevamot 50

In today’s Daf Yomi page, when the rabbis met Harry and Sally

April 26, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yevamot 50, finds the rabbis opining on how sex can change a relationship between men and women. Erin Carlson, the author of a book about screenwriter Nora Ephron, joins us to talk about how the writer’s legendary romantic comedies, and especially When Harry Met Sally, continue to address the same question today and have surprisingly more in common with the Talmudic mindset than we may think. So can men and women be friends without the sex getting in the way? Listen and find out.
