Chapter 1, Mishna 1
Why did the Earth shake when Yonasan ben Uzziel translated the Prophets into Aramaic? Why did the Earth not shake when Onkelos translated the Torah into Aramaic? What is the difference between translation and interpretation? What does it mean when a person becomes terribly afraid for no apparent reason? When the Megilla is being read, even Priests and Torah Scholars must stop what they’re doing and listen!
