    Ketubot 2 and 3

    Ketubot 2 and 3

    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.

    Today’s Talmud page, Ketubot 6, tells us that a mourner is obligated to fulfill all of the Torah's commandments, except the one requiring him to put on tefillin. Marco Greenberg, who started putting on tefillin at 57 after losing his mother to COVID-19, joins us to share his unlikely spiritual journey and what his mornings feel like now that they begin with the ritual of tefillin.
