Daf Yomi and a Defunct Enemy

January 9, 2020

History was made on January 1, 2020 when an unprecedented crowd of over 90,000 Jews filled New Jersey's Metlife Stadium to celebrate the completion of the current cycle of Daf Yomi, the daily page of Gemara learning that enables a person to learn all of the Talmud in seven years, a monumental accomplishment that hundreds of thousand of Jews around the world have achieved. History was made again a mere 48 later on January 3, 2020, when the arch-villain and modern day Haman, Iranian Quds commander and world's most dangerous terrorist General Qassam Soleimani was terminated in a brilliant US military operation in Baghdad airport. Is there a connection between the two events? Let's here today's podcast.
