86 — Chukat: The Other Woman's Son

June 17, 2021 Jaz Twersky and Lulav Arnow Episode 86
Kosher Queers
86 — Chukat: The Other Woman's Son
Show Notes

This week, we discuss whether it's a good idea to tell your girlfriend your secrets and let her tie you up, unearned dramatic plot resolutions, and how rough a position messengers must have been in. Plus, what does it really mean to have land "belong" to a "nation" or a "person" anyway? 

Transcript available here.

You can check out Yente Over the Rainbow, which is "a matchmaking service for LGBTQIA+ Jewish people" that Jaz works for. Here's the story about Arnold Schwarzenegger's illegitimate child. Also, we do recommend both Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric A. Kimmel (illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman), and this Talmud story about demons that you can dramatize yourself for all your child-entertaining purposes. Here's an Orthodox explainer on Radak, and here's Radak's commentary about how Yiftach's daughter didn't die, she just didn't ever get married.

This week's reading is Judges 11:1-33. Next week's reading is Micah 5:6–6:8.
