Megillah 14 and 15

In today’s Daf Yomi pages, the Jew Pancho Villa tried to kill

December 27, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Megillah 14 and 15, raise the question of whether you’re allowed to say a blessing for miracles that happened outside of the Land of Israel. Filmmaker Stacey Ravel Abarbanel joins us to talk about her award-winning new documentary, Unraveling, in which she explores an old family legend about Pancho Villa trying to kill her grandfather. Was the story true, and did the grandfather survive by miracle? Listen and find out.
