Taanit 9 and 10

In today’s Daf Yomi pages, how to get rich quick

November 22, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Taanit 9 and 10, make us a strange financial promise: Give 10% of your wealth to charity, and you’ll become rich quick. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to explain this strange idea, its origins, and why it remains the best piece of financial advice you’ll ever get. Why is God asking us to test Him? Listen and find out.
