Rosh Hashanah 8 and 9

In today’s Daf Yomi pages, ring the bell that still can ring

October 18, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Rosh Hashanah 8 and 9, pore over the meaning of liberty, the word and the concept. 

Rabbi Dr. Stuart Halpern joins us to talk about the liberty-themed biblical verse that inspired the Liberty Bell, and the ways the American icon stirred hearts and minds even as Americans were divided like never before.

Did Muhammad Ali really put the crack in the Liberty Bell? Listen and find out.
