Taanit: 19-25 – Daf Yomi One Week at a Time

The third chapter of Masechet Taanit describes numerous reasons the Rabbis would institute a fast: famine, locusts, wild animals, invaders or a plague. We will learn many famous stories of Sages who prayed for rain and were answered because of their special relationship with G-d or because of their righteousness.聽 We will hear about a Sage who spoke with Elijah the Prophet in the market and about someone who falls asleep and wakes up 70 years later.
