Today’s Daf Yomi page, Taanit 6, tells us that rain is at its most blessed when it is not angry but compassionate. Adit Romano, the founder of Israel’s Freedom Farm Sanctuary, joins us to discuss why we should listen to today’s daf and refrain from eating meat. What does a vegan lifestyle have to do with being Jewish? Listen and find out.
