We often think of questions about how to balance work and family as modern ones. However, a series of stories in Ketubot show that people have been struggling with these issues for hundreds of years. In these stories, the rabbis leave home to learn Torah, and often return to domestic chaos. Join Dr. Rachel Rosenthal to explore these stories to better understand how the rabbis understood their obligations to Torah, to themselves, and to their families.
