How Do We Share Society’s Burden?
How will our public institutions handle this financial crisis, and how will our society share the burden? The rabbis may not have experienced the current pandemic, but they thought a lot about this question. Join Talmudist Josh Kulp & senior rabbinic student, Eliana Mastrangelo, as they examine a passage from the Babylonian Talmud that may help us find some answers to one of our most pressing questions.
