Home / Talmud With Training Wheels: Meet the Evil Urge
This volume of Talmud With Training Wheels starts the discussion with a tour of the Temple during the Sukkot celebrations. Out of this festival comes a discussion of the Yetzer ha-Ra, the evil urge.
Included with this Talmudic text is a collection of Hevrutah texts about the Yetzer ha-Ra; Mishkin: Making a Dwelling Place for God by Rabbi Mordecai Finkley, and a word about the evil inclination by David Hozel. This volume adds up to a deep understanding of how Judaism understands and recommends resisting temptation.
