    Yoma 5 and 6

    Yoma 5 and 6

    Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Yoma 5 and 6, contain a strong rabbinic exhortation against sharing information without explicit permission. Stephanie Butnick joins us to take issue with this edict and propose that telling stories to and about each other helps us build a warm, tight-knit community. When, then, should we chat away and when should we keep our mouths shut? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 4

    Yoma 4

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 4, reminds us that everything worth doing is worth doing with a profound sense of awe. For a long time, our guest today, author Michal Oshman, was struggling with that insight: The granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, she grew up to have a successful career with some of the world's leading tech companies, but couldn't shake off her sense of anxiety and dread. It was meditating on Judaism's teachings about creation's inherent awe that brought her around, helping her find a sense of gratitude and peace. How can we make our life literally more awesome? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 3

    Yoma 3

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 3, couldn't be more timely: It's about the ways in which the priests must sequester themselves to achieve optimal holiness, a feeling that may not be too foreign to those of us who've had to spend long periods of time recently quarantined alone. Anya Lichtenstein joins us to talk about her year of living alone, and what surprising revelations came out of this solitude. Can being forced to spend a COVID lockdown alone lead to something akin to sanctity? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 2

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 2, introduces us to a new tractate, one that's all about Yom Kippur. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to preview Yoma and give us an idea of what to expect when discussing repentance, observance, and other key themes. What is the real meaning of Yom Kippur? Listen and find out.

    Shekalim 21 and 22

    Shekalim 21 and 22

    Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Shekalim 21 and 22, bring this short and strange tractate to its conclusion. What are we to learn from it? Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin joins us to suggest that Shekalim is a reminder of why it's important to pay your taxes, and how our financial obligations to each other help us build community. Why is it important for each of us to contribute to the collective project? Listen and find out.

    Shekalim 19 and 20

    Shekalim 19 and 20

    Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Shekalim 19 and 20, contemplate the uncertainty principle: What do we do when life presents us with intricate situations? As an old Hasidic tale reminds us, the point isn't to come up with the best answers, but to learn to ask the right questions. What did the meek student in the tale ask the wise old rabbi that won him the day? Listen and find out.

Take Daf Yomi

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this podcast but I have quickly become a big fan. One reason is because I am sometimes quite at odds with the take on a subject. Far form this being a problem, it serves to make me examine my thoughts more deeply, and on a more informed bases, on the issues and the subject matter. This is the very benefit that I most seek in choosing this podcast.

Love starting my day with Liel

When my partner suggested this podcast I laughed. After listening to a few with her in the car I was hooked - it is about time I said thank you for best 7-13 minutes of my day!

Thank you Liel

A great way to devote 10 minutes of your time 5 days a week. Liel is an engaging host. If you made Rabbi Bashevkin your co-host it would be even better! He’s the real secret sauce.
