Dedicated by Lisa Droski, in memory of her parents Bertrand and Florence Sandweiss.
A story about Rabbi Meir not keeping the halakhah he himself had paskened – an object lesson of not doing something just because you can. Also, medical lessons taught to Abaye by his mother, specifically about newborns. Notable is the level of care, given the times of the Talmud, without molecular knowledge. And: Two stories of women whose infants had died and whose next babies, one for each of them, were saved by the medical advice by R. Natan, science being within the scope of the talmid chacham.
