Megillah 10

In today’s Daf Yomi page, the Bible’s biggest little word

December 22, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Megillah 10, includes a rousing discussion of one classic biblical word, vayehi, and it came to pass. Rabbi Sari Laufer joins us to explain why the word sometimes foreshadows doom and sometimes blessings, and unearth its deeper theological meanings. So were our teachers wrong when they told us never to write in the passive voice? Listen and find out.
