Daf shvui/Weekly daf: Baba bathra 20b-21b
Apr 14, 2020 Season 2 Episode 5
Aryeh Cohen

The rabbi's central preoccupation, to quote Daniel Boyarin, is reproducing rabbis. Rabbis' sons who went "off the derekh/path" were considered "vinegar son of wine." However, how early does one start to teach the children; the future Sages? Is there any basis to the truism that universal Jewish education was a thing already during the time of the second Temple? (spoiler alert: no.) And what about unfair competition? These are the issues that this week's daf delves into.
So...Come on in to the bet midrash/the study hall! Pour your favorite beverage, get your favorite snack, put your feet up, and let's jump into the milkhamta shel torah/the struggle of Torah study.
And have a wonderful end of Pesach (if you celebrate it).

This week's daf can be found:
1. Vilna page (hebrew and aramaic) from Hebrewbooks.org
2. Hebrew and English from Sefaria.org
3. Hebrew and Aramaic with many commentaries from Alhatorah.org
