    Yevamot 69 and 70

    Yevamot 69 and 70

    Today’s pages of Talmud, Yevamot 69 and 70, remind us that we're all converts to Judaism, which means that even if we come from the most pristine lineage we still have to choose and do Jewish, rather than merely be Jewish, a choice we're asked to make again and again every day. What does that teach us about being kind to others, and about forgiving ourselves? Listen and find out.

Great podcast

Studying Talmud is hard. It’s easy to get lost in the nitty gritty details of the discussion and miss the important truths being conveyed. Take One Daf Yomi provides clarity that informs my study every day.
