Take One

Yevamot 86

In today’s page of Talmud, all the president’s men (are fighting each other)

June 1, 2022

Today’s page of Talmud, Yevamot 86, kicks things off with a hilarious story of two of the Talmud’s most famous rabbis quibbling with each other. Our very own Presidentscher Rav, historian and former official in the George W. Bush administration Dr. Tevi Troy, joins us with an amusing story from the Ford White House that shows that this kind of rivalry among the powerful and influential is still alive and well. Who is the future vice president who bested his opponent by boarding up his office and shutting down his access to the president? Listen and find out.
