The Stoic Jew
You Are a Soul Carrying a Corpse (Aurelius – Meditations 4:41)
Show Notes

Synopsis: Today’s episode is about the one-sentence chapter. I hate to use the phrase “short but sweet” to describe anything that has to do with corpses, but it is an apt characterization of this sentence. 

Today's Torah content has been brought to you by the generosity of my Patrons on Patreon.
