Taanit: 14-18 – Daf Yomi One Week at a Time

This week we will continue learning about the 3 sets of fast days they would institute when it didn鈥檛 rain in Israel by a certain date. The second chapter of Masechet Taanit begins by describing how they brought the Ark out into the street during these fast days. We will learn how they added 6 blessings to the Amida, making it a total of 24 blessings. We will also learn about the special minor holidays listed in Megilat Taanit, when it is forbidden to fast or eulogize on those days.
