The Goatee Inclination

Two inclinations, the Jewish tradition holds, exist within each person: good and evil. In this episode, we explore concepts of the nature of evil in Star Trek and Judaism. We welcome back Rabbi Jennifer Gorman to teach us about the Jewish concept of the yetzer hara. Hava and Josh explore depictions of evil in Star Trek, contrast them Jewish ideas, and explore how both connect to the nature of free will and destiny.
