Taanit 12

In today’s Daf Yomi page, taking a nice long nap

November 24, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Taanit 12, finds the rabbis debating that most pressing of all halachic questions: What, exactly, does one mean by “taking a nap”? Stephanie Butnick and Mark Oppenheimer, co-hosts of Unorthodox, join us to parse the difference between napping, dozing, and closing your eyes, and discuss the metaphysical importance of shut-eye. What, exactly, is a “ha-shoo”? Listen and find out.
