Dive into the Sea of Talmud

Here’s what the Random Talmud Server told me today: “Ben Damah the son of R. Ishmael’s sister once asked R. Ishmael, May one such as I who have studied the whole of the Torah learn Greek wisdom? He thereupon read to him the following verse, This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night. Go then and find a time that is neither day nor night and learn then Greek wisdom.” (B. Menachoth 99b).
