Some dapim have lots of aggadata, some have heated halakhic debates, some probe the “nitty-gritty” of halakhah. This daf does a little of the first two, and a good amount of the last one, in my estimation. The real question here is what counts as grain for purposes of Hamotzi (or even Mezonot), and what does not. The details are extensive, the general principles, less so. Yardaena discusses how to take a broad “daf yomi” approach a daf at this level of discussion — and I zoom in on one aggadic discussion involving Rabban Gamliel and Rabbi Akiva, in which everyone remains true to form.
Again, our numbers have jumped, and again, we think its thanks to Hadran listeners. Thank you for joining us!
