THIS WEEK'S DAF YOMI COLUMN BY ADAM KIRSCH IN TABLET: In the Talmud, One Sin Is Beyond Repentance: Giving God and Jews a Bad Name. A holy desecration is unethical in part because of the social pressure to reflect well on the tribe.

Plus the "trolly problem" and some dubious cures for rabies.

Earlier Daf Yomi columns are noted here and links.
