Rosh Hashanah 18

In today’s Daf Yomi page, studying Daf Yomi to honor a late friend

October 27, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Rosh Hashanah 18, reminds us that studying Talmud is a pursuit that contains multitudes.

Martin Gaynor, a survivor of the Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh, joins us to tell the story of how he and a fellow survivor decided to start studying Daf Yomi to honor the memory of their friend, Jerry Rabinowitz, who was murdered in the attack.

How does reading one page of Talmud a day help keep the memory of a beloved fallen friend alive? Listen and find out.
