Lomdei HaDaf across the world have just completed Maseches Rosh Hashanah, the 8th masechta in Shas. And with the start of each new masechta, Daf HaYomi chaburas spanning the globe are swelling in numbers, as learning the Daf becomes increasingly more popular.
The Torah calls Rosh Hashanah ‘Yom Teruah’, signifying that the mitzvah of shofar is not just a reflection of the spirit of the day, but that the shofar blowing is the essence of the day itself.
The thousands of Kov’ei Ittim who dedicate themselves to the Daf, day after day, experience a parallel of this concept. Learning Daf HaYomi transforms each day into a day of the Daf, a day of Torah. Just as the shofar blowing transforms the day of Rosh Hashanah into a ‘Yom Teruah’, the Daf learning of each Daf HaYomi participant elevates their entire day, every day, to be a day whose essence and focus is Torah.
In celebration of the accomplishment of these thousands of loyal learners, Ki Heim Chayeinu have produced a series of new videos about the mitzvah of Shofar. Featuring R’ Levi Yitzchok Meisner, the world’s leading shofar expert, these fascinating videos bring the Daffim of Maseches Rosh Hashanah from theory to actuality.
