Rosh Hashanah 11

In today’s Daf Yomi page, struggling with infertility

October 20, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Rosh Hashanah 11, gives us a moving meditation on infertility, and why the Torah equates conceiving a child with memory.

Naomi Korb Weiss, who sits on the board of the Jewish Fertility Foundation, joins us to talk about her own struggle to conceive, and the stigma that still surrounds so many aspects of having and not having kids.

How must we learn to fine-tune the way we talk to each other about infertility? Listen and find out.
