Agreed, Binya. This was amazing! This is so amazing
Jon Dine (he/him)
01:27:56
also Ishay Rosen-zvi and Talmud scholars would love the song about how the yetzer is a god inside you which is like a wholly new understanding of yetzer
Erie

Thank you all sooooo much !!
Rachel Davidson

01:46:24
lol
Alex Dillon (they/them)
01:47:13
that’s really helpful, rachel
Rachel Davidson
01:48:49
Caroline I love that your cat kind of slowly arose from the bottom of the screen as you were making this very serious point
Rachel Davidson
01:49:13
I like that Caroline, especially because there isn’t a Masechet Feelings or a Masechet Mourning, so they have to work that stuff in other ways
Avital Morris
01:49:33
I keep thinking of the data that show that people who punch walls and throw objects when angry are also more likely to physically abuse their intimate partners chas vshalom
Rachel Davidson
01:57:23
I think there’s also something interesting in the idea of mkalkel al mnat l’taken - sometimes in life you first destroy, in order to then fix
Vera Broekhuysen (she/her)
01:57:32
atah hu rishon v’atah hu acharon
Rachel Davidson
01:57:45
(Rip a seam in order to later fix it better) - not on shabbat, but a Malachi that needs to be done!
Rachel Davidson
02:00:55
*malacha
Caroline Taymor
02:02:31
I’m thinking, Vera, of our yetzer as our inner 2 year old, and that giving in to a toddler’s tantrums might make peace in the grocery store, but is not actually productive long term, often
Caroline Taymor
02:02:38
(I mean, you made me think of that)
Vera Broekhuysen (she/her)
02:02:46
דקעביד
דקעביד
02:03:33
Caroline YES. And thinking that about the Russian war on Ukraine also - quieting the howling for the moment isn’t always a good predictor or guarantor for the future
