Take One

Yevamot 55 and 56

May 2, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Yevamot 55 and 56, find the rabbis asking a real tough question: What, exactly, do we mean when we talk about having sex? Rabbi Chaim Brent Spodek joins us to share some thoughts about intimacy, the ways in which we understand and misunderstand sex, and what we can do to become better (Jewish) lovers. Why is a kiss so important? Listen and find out.
