Section 15

This section is entitled “The Issue of Radlah (רישא דלא אתידע — Reisha D’lo Ityada, “The Unfathomable Beginning) and Uncertainties about It” and it encompasses Petachim 85-89. As usual, we’ll first translate each Petach, arrive at an overview of the entire section, then explain each Petach separately in that light.
