The Joy of Text Ep. 502: Meeting Your Bashert (Soulmate) on Yom Kipper? (Mishnah Taanit 4:8)

by Max Hollander (Posted on October 7, 2019)

Meeting your Beshert (Soulmate) on Yom Kipper? We are kicking off the first mini-text episode of the season with a Mishnah in Taanit, which sheds some light on the nature of Yom Kipper with an interesting ancient custom that young, single, Jewish women performed in the times of the Gemara. To learn the text yourself, check out Mishnah Taanit, Perek 4, Mishnah 8.
