Talmud Segment

I only know the Talmud from being ecstatically proud of my cousin Saydie at her Bat Mitzvah, pretty much. I don’t know from religion. My friend Aviva, however, once tweeted this tiny excerpt, right when the world was in the middle of an astonishing need for civic engagement (which hasn’t ended). I think 2017 or 2018. I was really touched and also in the middle of practicing calligraphy so I drew it out with her, first in fat flat pencil and then with colored pencils.
