Daf Shvui/Weekly Daf: Give me forty minutes or so and I'll give you a daf or so

I know that all the cool kids are jumping on to the daf yomi bandwagon. However, if you are looking for something a bit more mellow, a bit more curated, less a part of the rough and tumble of the daf yomi speedway—I invite you to daf shvu'i, a weekly page of Talmud. In about 40-50 minutes you can learn a page of Talmud. No previous experience required.

On this pod, recorded and uploaded just before Pesach, we are gliding in for a landing on the large Daughters of Zelophehad midrashic run we've had for the past few dapim. Great to go into the seder thinking about the history of standing up to authority, maybe.

There's more to talk about and learn about. The seemingly endless tale of the daughters of Zelophehad and Moshe. Including in this week's episode—what happened in the study hall?

We're still working through the halakhic details of the case of the daughters of Zelophehad, and we've added working through the details of the Josephites and their claim for more land, and others who were denied a portion in the Land of Israel. Fascinating stuff here. All in this week's daf. Join us.

Its a tour of Tannaitic texts, a veritable a Mishnah, Midrash, and Tosefta fabula in this week's daf. We focus on the daughters of Zelophehad and their inheritance and how that intertwines with the detailed discussions of inheriting the Land.
Its all in this week's daf!

This week, within the continuing discussion of the line of inheritance we visit one of the most awful stories in the book of Judges, we check in on Solomon's worthiness to rule, we get some rules to live by and we bring to an end, the discussion of the mishnah.

We finish the Talmudic discussion of the first mishnah and begin the discussion of the second mishnah. We also witness a throw down between Sages and Sadducees. (Spoiler alert: the Sages win.)

Two new questions this week: 1. How long following an acquisition, a qinyan can one renege from the acquisition?
2. Why does the mishnah twice note, in different ways, that a woman does not inherit from her son even though she may bequeath to them.

Still trying to figure out the order of inheritance. You'd be surprised how many different paths to bequeath and inherit there are. And then a short conversation about the judicial mechanics of inheriting, and a jaunt into "the rabbis don't know everything."

Once again into the breach. Can a husband inherit from his wife from the Torah? Or can only a son inherit from his mother? Three versions of the conversation in this week's daf.
Also the two poems that I read this week were from Leah Naomi Green's first book of poetry The More Extravagant Feast available through Graywolf Press.

Still trying to figure out the patriarchal precedence in inheritance.  Zecharyah ben Haqatzav putting up futile resistance to the patriarchal hegemony. A fun little story about a rabbi on rabbi beatdown. And, of course, the gemara is worried about the estate slip-sliding away from the father's tribe/family to the mother's.
It's all in this week's daf.

This week we dive into a discussion of the idol of Micah which somewhat/somehow clarifies what the importance or significance of inheritance lines is. Then we get back into about who inherits—son or daughter?

We are continuing our discussion of who inherits whom, and why is it the male? We also dip our toes into a more spiritual or ethical understanding of inheritance.

It's a new chapter and a new conversation in which the Mishnah and then the Talmud takes on the question of inheritance—where did possession all start? Is that good or bad? Who gets to inherit? (Spoiler alert, on the whole, inheritance is another way to preserve the patriarchal line.) Well, let's get started.

To celebrate the completion of the second chapter of Baba Batra, I invited Charlotte Fonrobert, a professor in the Religious Studies department at Stanford University whose current research focuses on the rabbinic eruv, or Shabbat boundary, and the way that the laws and culture of eruv define Jewish identity. Our wide ranging conversation delved into the 2000 plus years of eruv—from the Qumran community to the Hamptons and the Dail...

(the original description:)
In order to mark and celebrate the completion of the first chapter of Baba Bathra, we invited Prof. Alyssa Gray to discuss her new book Charity in Rabbinic Judaism: Atonement, Rewards, and Righteousness. Our conversation illuminates some of the poverty relief material that we saw in the first chapter, in addition to putting that material in a larger context. And then we study a passage together.

This week we delve into another case of saying things with words, and then finding out that perhaps it is not the words but the possession. We also look at an example of the artistry of the stam. Its wild; and its all in this week's daf.
