      We're still in the swing of worldwide celebrations of the Siyum HaShas, the completion of the Talmud (a page a day), which happens every 7 1/2 years. The new cycle began on Friday August 3. Why do sports analogies come to mind? Why has the secular media been so interested? What Derech Eretz connections are there to this substantive achievement?

      Elan also shares a lesson from Sunday's page of Talmud (Berachot 4a). It's early enough to still jump on the Daf Yomi train, come on, get on board! Elan is happy to hear from you anytime at rabbiadlerinisrael@gmail.com   

      Keep that Derech Eretz thing going!

      Rabbi Elan Adler served as a pulpit Rabbi for 25 years in Stamford, Ct and Baltimore, Md prior to making aliyah in 2010. Rabbi Adler received his Smicha from Yeshiva University, had the privilege of being an aide to Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik for two years, was an activist Rabbi in support of Israel and aliyah, and served as the President of the Baltimore Board of Rabbis. During his tenure as a Rabbi, he was known for being an engaging speaker and teacher, never failing to make easy connections with Jewish people as well as the non-Jewish and African American community.
