Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Ketubot 2 and 3, kick off a brand new Talmudic tractate, this one dealing with the Ketubah, or marriage contract. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to preview some of the great questions the tractate will cover, and ponder why Judaism opted for a marriage contract that reads like a corporate merger rather than a more personal, intimate, and heartfelt vow. Why do so many people hang their Ketubah on the wall? Listen and find out.
