Study Guide Megillah 30 Today’s daf is sponsored by the Hadran zoom group in honor of Becki Goldstein’s grandson, Amitai. “Amitai finished Shas Mishnayot this week. As Becki wrote: "To fill the void felt in Bavel after the destruction of the Temple they found comfort in their mikdash me'at - batei knessiot u'batei midrashot. And we, her Hadran Zoom family, take joy in seeing the comfort and pride passed on." What is done if Parshat Shekalim falls out on the Parsha of Tetzave, which ends just before the beginning of Ki Tisa, which is the reading for Shekalim according to Shmuel? Abaye and Rabbi Yitzchak Nafcha each have different solutions and questions are raised and support texts are brought. If Rosh Chodesh Adar falls on Friday, Rav and Shmuel debate whether or not we read Parshat Shekalim on the preceding Shabbat or the following Shabbat. Texts are brought to question/prove the different opinions. They have a similar debate regarding Parshat Zachor when Purim falls on Friday. What is the root of their debate? What weeks are the other parshiot read? What is read each of the four weeks? Were the parshiot read instead of the weekly Torah portion or only instead of the maftir and haftorah? What Torah portion is read on each of the holidays?

Study Guide Megillah 22 This month’s shuirim are dedicated by Efrat Arnold in loving memory of Joshua Carr, Yehoshua Aryeh Leib ben Yonatan Chaim and Malka Esther HaCohen. "An inspiring young man who loved learning and had made his first siyum just a few weeks ago for Masechet Rosh Hashana." This month’s shiurim are dedicated by Tova and David Kestenbaum in honor of their children and grandchildren. "May Hashem bless them to continue in the path of Torah handed down from Hashem to Moshe Rabbeinu at Har Sinai, from generation to generation." How does one divide the Torah reading for Rosh Chodesh into four sections in a way that avoids issues such as ending an aliya while leaving less than three verses to the section? In order to answer the question, the Gemara brings a debate of Rav and Shmuel regarding how to divide the Torah readings for the maamadot. A difficulty on both approaches is brought from a braita with a debate between the tana kama and an anonymous tana about breaking up Torah portions for reading. However, the cases aren’t comparable. Is it more likely that people will show up late to shul, in the middle of the Torah reading, or that they will leave in the middle of the Torah reading? What relevance is there to this question? The Mishna did not mention how many aliyot there are on a fast day. Is it 3 like Mondays and Thursdays or four like Rosh Chodesh and Chol Hamoed? Several sources are brought to try to answer this question, including inferences from our Mishna, however, most are rejected. One of the sources related to an incident when Rav came to Bavel and read from the Torah and made a blessing before and not after. Also during the tachanun prayer he did not fall on his face. The Gemara tries to understand why acted in this way.

Study Guide Megillah 18 Today’s daf is sponsored by Shikma Katz on behalf of her husband and children. Today’s daf is dedicated for a refuah shleima to Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzipora who is undergoing surgery this morning. The Gemara finishes explaining the order of Shmone Esreh. If the men of the Great Assembly put together Shmone Esreh, why did Shimon HaPakula need to organize it as well many years later? One is not allowed to add more to the prayer of Shmoneh Esreh that was put together by the rabbis as one cannot fully praise God so better not to say not enough or the wrong thing. The virtue of silence is praised by the rabbis. From where do we learn that the Megillah has to be read from a book? A translation is also no good - this means if it was written in another language and read in that language. But the Mishna also said that one who speaks a foreign language can read in that language! How can one resolve this contradiction? Rav and Shmuel say it is permitted only if it is in Greek. However, that also contradicts a braita that says that one who speak any language can read the Megillah in that language. Therefore Rav and Shmuel must have meant that Greek is permitted even if one doesn't speak Greek. One who doesn't understand Hebrew can still read the Megillah in Hebrew as just by reading it, one can fulfill publicizing the miracle of Purim. If one reads it in intervals, it is fine. The word for intervals is 'serugin' - it was a word unfamiliar to them and they learned the definition from Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi's maidservant. She also knew the definition of a number of other words that the Gemara lists. Rabbi Muna held that there is a time limit of the interval - that it not be longer than the time it takes to say the Megillah. Rav and Shmuel disagree about whether we hold like Rabbi Muna or not. What if the words are rubbed out? What does the reader do if he/she skips a verse? What if one walks in late? If one dozes off, one can still fulfill one's obligation. What is the definition of dozing? As one writes a Megillah and reads the verses as one is writing, can one fulfill one's obligation? On what does it depend? Can one write a book without using an existing book as one's guide? Are there any exceptions to this rule?

Study Guide Taanit 27 Today’s daf is sponsored by Judi Felber on the third yartzeit of Yovel MorYosef and Yossi Cohen, who were killed in a terror attack at Givat Assaf and for the continued refuah sheleima of her son, Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzpora, who was critically injured in the attack.  Today’s daf is sponsored by Patti Evans in loving memory of her mother, Gloria Weisman's, first yahrzeit. “My mother loved that I was learning Daf Yomi, and always wished she had been able to learn more in her almost 99 years. She loved being Jewish and celebrated life each and every day. Her indomitable spirit is sorely missed by us all.” Today's daf is also sponsored by Sylvia Simmons in loving memory of Pessy Simmons, Pessy bat Eliyahu Yitschak v'Rachel Leah. “Pessy - who inspired many with her enquiring mind and lifelong love of Jewish learning – would admire the growing community of female Talmud learners.”  Is the prohibition for kohanim to bless the people while drunk derived from laws of nazir or from a juxtaposition in the verse Devraim 10:8 between serving in the Temple and blessing the people? Why were the maamadot instituted? A braita states that 24 mishmarot of kohanim were in Israel and 12 were in Jericho. Does that mean there were 36!? And what exactly is meant in Israel/in Jericho? Kohanim and levites are essential for sacrifices. Are the maamadot also? What about the musical instruments? Is the important part of the music the voices or the instruments? Moshe set up eight rotations of kohanim but a different source says sixteen. Also, there are contradictory statements about how and when it became twenty-four. Which families of kohanim that were in the first Temple came back to Israel when the second Temple was built and served there as well. Why do we read the Torah portion of the creation of the world during the maamadot? The people in the maamadot would fast from Monday-Thursday of that week. Regarding the Torah portion, in a case where there are five verses in one part (one day of creation) and three in the other, the three are all read on one Aliya. But there is a debate between Rav and Shmuel regarding the five - is one verse is repeated in both aliyot or split in half, as one must read a minimum of three verses for each aliya. Difficulties are raised against the different opinions.

Daf Yomi for Women – דף יומי לנשים – English

Today’s daf is sponsored by Deborah Aschheim Weiss in loving memory of Sara Yehudit Sharf (Sara Yehudit bat Sarah Imanu) on the Shloshim. “You inspired many with your commitment. You chose the Jewish Nation as your people, Hebrew as your language, and the land of Israel and Yerushalayim as your home, studying intensely along the way and marveling at the privilege. You touched the lives of so many around you. You will live on in the hearts and memories of many." Nadimon ben Gurion is reaching the end of the day in which he needs to repay the loan of the water he borrowed from a wealthy gentile and the rain has still not come. He goes to the Temple to pray and the rain finally comes. However, the gentile claims that the sun has set and he has missed the deadline. However, the clouds move and the sun comes out and Nakdimon is able to repay the debt on time. He is likened to Moshe and Yehoshua who were able to change time. Yehoshua had the sun stand still in battle, but from where do we know that this happened with Moshe? Rav Yehuda had a tradition from Rav of translating certain verses in a manner that was the opposite of the simple reading – sometimes changing a positive verse to have a negative connotation and a negative one to have a positive connotation. A story is told of Rabbi Elazar, the son of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai who met an ugly man and treated him disrespectfully because of his looks. The ugly man reprimanded him and would not forgive him when Rabbi Elazar begged for forgiveness. Rabbi Elazar learned from this situation that one should be soft like a reed and not hard as a cedar tree. For that reason, a reed is used for writing a sefer Torah, tefillin, and mezuzot. One institutes fasts for buildings that collapse but only if it is something unnatural and unexpected. It seems that certain people had enough merits that if there was a wall that was about to fall, their merits would help to keep the wall from falling. A story is told of Rav and Shmuel who avoided a particular wall for years for concern it would fall but when Rav Ada bar Ahava was with them, they walked past the wall. Rav Huna needed to remove items from his house that was about to fall so he coaxed Rav Ada to go into the house so that Rav Huna could enter without concern it would fall on him. Rav Ada only later realized he was being used and gets upset with Rav Huna and tells him that even though he has merits, one should not rely on a miracle and also it will use up his merits! What did Rav Ada do to merit this? We are also told of good deeds Rav Huna was known to have done.

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

At the end of this week's Parasha, Vayeshev , Yosef HaTzaddik interpreted the dreams of the Sar HaOfim and the Sar HaMashkim . He told the Sar HaMashkim he was going to get his job back and continue living as before, while he told the Sar HaOfim he was going to die. Rav Meir Shapiro asked, where did Yosef see life and death in the dreams that these men had. The Rabbi answered, the Sar HaMashkim related to Yosef that he saw himself holding the cup of Paraoh , taking grapes, pressing them into the cup and placing the cup into Paraoh's hands. Yosef saw that he was active, working hard, and those are signs of life. While the Sar HaOfim said he saw himself with a basket on his head with food inside of it and birds coming to eat from it. He was inactive and that was a sign of no life. The Rabbi concluded, “Hashem wants us to use our lives to accomplish. Every day there is another opportunity to grow and do more and not sit around and wait for things to happen on their own.” There is so much we can accomplish spiritually with every moment of life. The sefer Vaveh HaAmudim told a story about the famed Ponovitcher Rav, Rabbi Yosef Kahaneman. The Rabbi spent his days building Torah and he established one of the most prominent yeshivot in the entire world. He had to make numerous trips, traveling worldwide to raise the necessary funds to support the yeshiva. On one of those occasions, he returned to his host's house after a long, tiring day of collecting. He went to lie down, totally sapped of all his strength. The host ran to make the Rabbi a cup of tea and a plate of food and asked him what he could do to help him. The Rabbi answered, “The best thing you could do for me is to get me a telephone because there were many people I didn't get to go to today and I want to call them to see if they want to take part in this great mitzvah of supporting Torah.” The host said, “Rabbi, you're no longer a young man. From where do you draw the strength to keep pushing yourself like this?” The Rabbi answered, “If you want to know, it's from an episode that took place when I was younger that made a very big impression on me.” The Rabbi then related the episode. He said, “When I was younger, my mother used to make a special homemade mishloach manot and send it to the Rabbi and Rebbitzin of our community. On Purim, she would send my siblings and I to deliver it. One year, my father came home, it was a week before Purim and he said he got something else he wanted to give the Rabbi, along with the mishloach manot . That day, a traveling salesman came to our town and he had with him an entire Masechet Baba Batra in the Vilna edition of the Shas. At that time, nobody had their own Gemarot and my father knew for a fact that our Rabbi did not have his own Shas either. He bought the Gemara as a present for the Rav. On Purim, I along with my two brothers went to deliver the mishloach manot as well as that Gemara . When we arrived, my brother gave the homemade dessert and the Rav said to his wife, ‘So nice, the Kahaneman boys are here to give us mishloach manot .' And then I took out the Gemara and told the Rabbi, ‘Here, this is a gift from my father.' The sight of what I saw next, I will never forget. The Rabbi's eyes welled up with tears. He hugged the Gemara and he said in a loud voice, ‘An entire Masechet Baba Batra !' And he began dancing with it for 20 minutes around his table, as if it was Simchat Torah .” Rabbi Kahaneman then got out of his bed to show the host exactly how the Rabbi danced. Then he continued, “The Rabbi asked his Rebbitzin if she could give him a special present to which she replied, ‘Of course.' He said we usually start our Purim seuda at 5:00. Can we start it at 6:00? And from 5:00 until 6:00, I will go into my study and learn this Masechet for one full uninterrupted hour. She said that would be her greatest pleasure. The Rabbi then, once again, began dancing with the Gemara for an additional 20 minutes.” Rav Kahanemen concluded, “I was 11 years old at that time. When I saw the Rabbi's love of Torah, I decided on the spot, when I get older I'm going to put all of my strength into helping people learn this Torah. And that is where I get my strength from.” The sefer Vaveh HaAmudim concluded with the following two messages. #1 – Look at what an impression someone can make when he does something with joy. We as well can have such a big impact on our children when we portray the beauty of Torah and mitzvot in the way we act towards them. And #2 – Look at what this Rabbi accomplished with one act of ahavat Torah . He had a major share in the building of one of the world's largest yeshivot . His love of Torah is what inspired Rav Kahaneman to spend his life upholding Torah. We could all accomplish so much with each moment of life. Shabbat Shalom.
