Yoma 59

In today’s Daf Yomi page, the wisdom of crowds

June 9, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 59, finds the rabbis quoting a popular folk saying. Professor A.J. Berkovitz joins us to shed light on the rabbinic system of knowledge, which revolved around studiousness and expertise but realized that wisdom resides in all corners of society and was open to learning from ordinary people as well as experts.

What might today’s professors learn from the rabbis’ approach to learning and teaching? Listen and find out.
