Taanit 25

In today’s Daf Yomi page, the real meaning of miracles

December 7, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Taanit 25, gives us a lovely domestic miracle, making vinegar burn as long as oil throughout Shabbat in a scene reminiscent of the famous story of Hanukkah. What does this little tale teach us about the Festival of Lights? And why did the rabbis change a bloody story of military victory into an intimate one that takes place indoors? Listen and find out.
