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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep that Derech Eretz thing going!
