1) At the Ma’ayanot dinner this past Saturday night, I was so impressed by the three students who made a siyum on Masechet Berachot. Not only did these very wise young ladies ask those in attendance who were also keeping up with the daf, and also finished Berachot, to stand and join them as they recited the Hadran, but I was blown away by the number of women in the audience who stood, i.e. were learning Daf Yomi. That’s tremendous!
2) Unless I missed it, I’m not sure why The Link didn’t cover Rabbi Baum’s discussion on anti-Semitism with Abe Foxman, from Sunday, March 1. Especially now, it’s unacceptable not to have media coverage for such an important event.Name Withheld on Request
