Megillah 30

In today’s Daf Yomi page, remembering the evil that is Amalek

January 11, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Megillah 30, brings up one of the thorniest questions in all of Talmud, the question of the dreaded Amalek. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to explain why this enemy is so terrible, and why we’re still commanded to do war with Amalek’s memory. Shall we remember what Amalek did to us, or forget these evildoers altogether? Listen and find out.
