Yevamot 59

In today’s Daf Yomi page, thinking about virginity

May 5, 2022

Today’s page of Talmud, Yevamot 59, gets very technical about virginity and its meaning. Kylie Unell, host of the new podcast 49 Days to Stretch My Soul, joins us to talk about Spinoza, the mind-body connection, and how purity of thought is just as important to understanding the idea of virginity as anything else. Can you remain in a true state of purity in a society flooded by explicit images? Listen and find out.
