Husbands, Wives, and Human Dignity in the Talmud
Miriam Gedwiser / October 14, 2020
Our intimate relationships often bring out both the best and the worst in us. How do we navigate these relationships in a way that balances the needs of both partners? What happens if one partner is not interested in that balance? In this course we will examine a series of Talmudic narratives that speak to these questions.
