In this captivating three-part series, Dr. Jeffrey Rubenstein returns to our podcast to unravel the intricate tapestry of Talmudic narratives surrounding Elisha ben Abuyah, also known as "Aḥer" (the Other), the apostate. Exploring the accounts in the Mishna, Tosefta, Talmud Yerushalmi, and Talmud Bavli, Dr. Rubenstein provides a meticulous analysis of the traditions about Aḥer, examining the striking similarities, nuanced differences, varied approaches, and profound lessons embedded within the various cultural settings of these Aggadic stories. The episodes ponder the contemporary relevance of Aḥer, questioning what insights can be drawn from his enigmatic journey into "Pardes" to his brazen violation of halakha, and more. Join us as we dive into the intricate perspectives of the Sages on the heretic teacher of Rabbi Meir, contemplating the extent to which Torah lessons can be gleaned from a scholar who once stood within the religious fold.
An intellectual odyssey awaits as we navigate the complexities of Aḥer's tale and unravel its timeless implications. Join us for episode 1 of 3 in the Aḥer series.

(FYI this 3-part series was recorded over a span of a year, so some personal anecdotes should be understood in that context. Also, it's ideal to watch this episode in particular on our YouTube channel because of all the slideshow visuals he provided.

*This episode is dedicated to the neshama of Meir ben Moshe a'h — Abdolrahim Ilian, the late father of our dear friend, Rod Ilian.
