The Shattered Tablets in the Ark – Gefet

Gefet: Gemara, Perushim and Tosfot

An in-depth (Iyun) Gemara shiur with Rabbanit Yael Shimoni and Shalhevet Schwartz (Episode 85)

On the 17th of Tammuz, the luchot were broken. Our sugya arrives, via a question about how to distribute sacred texts, at a discussion of what, precisely, was in the Aron haBerit – the Ark of the Covenant – and teaches that both “the tablets and the shattered tablets were placed in the Ark.” Commentators debate about where exactly the shards were kept. Join us to explore what lies at the heart of this debate: a larger question about the place of broken pieces聽in聽our聽lives.
