The Jumping Elephant Returns


In a few days, Daf Yomi reaches Kiddushin 26b, and the famous Case of the Jumping Elephant. Those who missed my essay on this topic from two years ago can download it by clicking here (2.5 meg PDF file). This is a slightly updated edition. I'm always amazed at how many questions I still receive on this topic, and at how many of them would be answered if people who claim to have read my essay would actually read it carefully!

I'm not so interested in the shtickel Torah, but the video is great!

With photoshop, even an elephant can jump. Come on, if your essays are as serious as the video clip, go into a different profession.

If my essays were as serious as the video clip, I would.

I'm not Jewish, but going along to the Cambridge University Jewish Society, I have developed a love for the Talmud and Torah. I really like your essays. It's a shame that some people don't like what you have to say. Keep up the Kiddush Hashem.

I don't get it. Is this video a fake?
