Take One

Beitzah 6, 7 and 8

In today’s Daf Yomi pages, the real story behind why we eat apples on Rosh Hashanah

September 6, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Beitzah 6 and 7 and 8, ask us how we’re supposed to feel on Rosh Hashanah: Happy for the holiday? Fearful of divine judgment?

Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to ponder these questions and shed light on the age-old mystery: Why do we eat apples on Rosh Hashanah? Listen and find out.
