What can experience teach you that nothing else can? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 11

    Yoma 11

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 11, begins with a curious story about a rabbi performing a mitzva and still coming into harm's way, which leads to a meditation on the connection between our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Stacy Berman joins us to talk about how our thoughts and beliefs influence our health, and shares some tips on keeping all of our systems aligned. What little things can you do to make sure the heart and the soul sync up with the rest of you? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 10

    Yoma 10

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 10, contains a curious meditation on the power of the mezuzah to turn a house into a home. Producer Josh Kross returns to tell the story of how and why he, an avowed atheist, was moved to bless his new home with a mezuzah, and how having one changes the way the house feels. What do you tell your children when they ask you about that strange little artifact on the doorpost? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 9

    Yoma 9

    Today’s Daf Yomi page, Yoma 9, teaches us what might, without much exaggeration, be called the Talmud's most urgent lesson: How to have profound disagreements without devolving into tribalism and needless hatred. This conversation between Liel Leibovitz and Jay Michaelson — two radically divergent thinkers who disagree on everything from Israel to American politics is a lesson in how to put this sage wisdom to the test. How do you talk to someone who sees the world in a radically different way? Listen and find out.

    Yoma 7 and 8

    Yoma 7 and 8

    Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Yoma 7 and 8, deliver a neat meditation on the ways the garments of the priests helped them feel a little bit closer to God. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin returns to tell us about how the tefillin Jewish men are commanded to wear every morning is simply a continuation of the same idea, and how every day contains a few small opportunities to transcend from the mundane to the divine. How can our daily actions help us overcome our sins and be a bit more like the High Priest on the holiest day of the year? Listen and find out.

    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.

Starting to fade

At the start of the Daf cycle the pod cast was strong. Now I feel there are a couple of issues: 1. Sound quality from a majority of the callers is very poor and I cannot even listen to the episode. 2. Self promotion of the “guest” speakers. They are promoting their new book, their podcast ect. Let’s get back to the heart of the Daf and focus on making each day aka podcast the best it can with the best sound quality from the callers.
