Megillah 25

In today’s Daf Yomi page, blessing the bad

January 6, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Megillah 25, discusses one of the most difficult decrees in all of the Talmud, the one commanding us to bless the bad things that happen to us just as eagerly as we give thanks for the good. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to explain this difficult idea, and how it can still give us much comfort and joy today. How is being grateful for disasters good for you? Listen and find out.
