Do Angels Eat? – Gefet

Gefet:聽Gemara, Perushim and Tosfot

An in-depth (Iyun) Gemara shiur with Rabbanit Yael Shimoni and Shalhevet Schwartz (Episode 80)

In its discussion of provisions for workers, the gemara speaks about Avraham’s seudah and notes that the angels didn’t actually eat there. Tosafot is surprised, and says that this is up for debate! So who is it who thinks that the angels really ate, and why would someone say something so bizarre? Join is for this unique Gefet, which bridges halakha聽and聽aggadah.
