Dedicated in the memory of Dr. Dodi Tobin z”l. || A series of what amounts to recommendations by the sages for a healthy diet during pregnancy. Including how a mother’s diet of etrogim made the child smell good, to the extent that the child was used to spice. Plus, more marriage politics around nursing, which are apparently eternal. Also, just how delectable all kinds of food, meat and wine and mushrooms and turnip and even pomegranates can be, to drive people beyond distraction in their desire and appetite for the food. And how the way one treats the waiters is indicative of one’s righteousness – and if one is righteous enough, Elijah the Prophet just might pop by for a visit. Plus, the next mishnah. And – 2 sages with comparable names. And a dispute between Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai that brings us back to pregnancy and nursing.
