God Knows Who You’re Praying For

In which a number of small topics presented themselves for perusal, in what we call: Tidbit Day.

The fine-tuned demurral of the wanna-be shaliach tzibur. Knowing whom to ask to pray on your behalf — and the assurance (with prooftext!) that God knows who you’re talking about. Also, the messianic era and one strong voice on what will and won’t change.

What’s What: Yored lifnei ha-teivah.

Anne and Yardaena

She is a veteran educator, having taught in high school and post-high school institutions in Israel and America for several decades. Yardaena Osband is a pediatrician and teaches in her community and online. They both hail from Boston, proud alumna of Maimonides School, where they first learned Gemara. Talking Talmud is their conversation (via podcast) on the daf yomi. They say: "Learning the daf? We have something for you to think about. Not learning the daf? We have something for you to think about! (Along with a taste of the daf...) Join the conversation with us!"
