Shekalim 10

In today’s Daf Yomi page, counting down to community

March 31, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Shekalim 10, extols the unique sanctity of the Land of Israel, which is intricately tied to the Omer. Rabbi Dr. Stuart Halpern joins us to talk about the Omer, why we count it, and what the experience can teach us about Eretz Yisrael and about repairing the world. Why is counting the Omer the antithesis of, say, riding your Peloton exercise bike? Listen and find out.
