Babylonian Talmud Shabbat 105b

 

תלמוד בבלי מסכת שבת דף קה עמוד ב

Original Text:

המקרע בגדיו בחמתו והמשבר כליו בחמתו והמפזר
מעותיו בחמתו יהא בעיניך כעובד עבודה זרה

Translation:

One who tears their clothing, breaks their utensils, or scatters one's money in anger should be in your eyes as if that person had served idols. [Translation by Big Green Jewish]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why are these three actions problematic? What do they tell us about a person?
2. Why are these actions compared to idol worship? What does this teach us about how we are supposed to behave in times of stress?
