Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #26: Aggadot of Pesachim II: Searching and Seeing In this shiur, we continue to analyze the aggadic framework created by the sections at the beginning of chapter 1 of Pesachim and the end of chapter 3, focusing on the themes of light and the future redemption. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #27: The Carpenter’s Apprentice In this shiur, we will study the aggada of the carpenter's apprentice, which appears at the conclusion of a series of aggadot about the destruction of the Second Temple. Through analysis of the characters in the story, we will demonstrate how the story can be understood as a metaphor. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #28: The Pious Man and the Goat (Part I) In the next few shiurim, we will examine a narrative from Tractate Bava Kama 80a in the Babylonian Talmud about a pious man who keeps a goat in his home for medical reasons, despite the ban on doing so in the Eretz Yisrael. By comparing this story to its various parallels and its broader context in the Babylonian Talmud, we will attempt to demonstrate how minor discrepancies in formulation and the broader context influence the message of the story. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #29: The Pious Man and the Goat (Part II) In this shiur, we continue our discussion of the narrative of the Pious Man and the Goat, as found in the Babylonian Talmud, focusing on it's emphasis and the relationship between "chasidim" and dangerous animals. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #30: The Pious Man and the Goat (Part III) The main point that arose in our analysis of the story of the pious man and the goat is that the Babylonian Talmud moves the focus of the story from the problem of transgressing the words of one’s colleagues to the very problem of maintaining a beheima daka, the embodiment of thievery, in the home of a supposedly pious person — the sort of individual who, generally speaking, would stay far away from anything that gives off a whiff of larceny or impinging on the property of another. In this shiur, we will analyze how this aggada fits into the context of the sugya in the Babylonian Talmud. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #31: Moshe on High (Part I) In this shiur, we begin our discussion of the famous aggada describing Moshe's viewing of the life of R. Akiva, focusing on the structure of the narrative. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
Rav Dr. Yonatan Feintuch Shiur #32: Moshe on High (Part II) In the previous shiur, we began to discuss the aggada in which Moshe ascends on high. We saw that based on the content and form, the aggada may be split in two different ways, and these divisions are not complementary. In the current shiur, we will propose an explanation for this phenomenon. Talmudic Aggadot (2)
