How Long? Really?

October 9, 2020

Ed Friedman is part of a study group called Daf Yomi.

Daf Yomi is Hebrew, and comes to English as “page of the day” because every day the members systematically study one of the pages of the Talmud.

The Talmud is the record of rabbinc discussions of Jewish law.

It’s 2,711 pages long.

The Daf Yomi cycle is a seven and half years long.

What do they do when they get to the end?

Start all over again.

“Every night I can’t wait to learn what the Talmud will say,” enthuses Mr. Freidman.

*cough, cough* Kinda makes our whining about reading like a chapter a day in our Bibles look rather…uhm…I’ll let you finish that sentence.
