Today's Daf Yomi

April 7, 2021 | כ״ה בניסן תשפ״א

Masechet Shekalim is sponsored by Sarene Shanus and Harold Treiber in memory of their parents, “who taught us the value of learning and of being part of the Jewish community.”

This month's shiurim are sponsored by Bill Futornick in memory of Rabbi David Teitelbaum Z"L, who led Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City, CA for 38 years. He was an extraordinary leader, teacher, moral exemplar and family man who truly fought for equality and deeply embraced ahavat tzion.

Today’s daf is sponsored by Carol Robinson – Karina Gola bat Huddah – and Art Gould “in gratitude to HaShem for the good news from Carol’s scans last week. And to Carol’s medical team for their excellent care – medical and emotional. And of course in gratitude to all of our friends in the Hadran Zoomer community and to Rabbanit Michelle for their affection, support and love.” And by Sara and Danny Berelowitz in honor of the engagement of their daughter Shevi Berelowitz to Jacob Namrow. “Mazal Tov!”

Where were the prostrations done? In the mishna it is written that it was done by the 13 gates and mentions the names of all the gates and explains the meaning of some of the names. In the gemara they bring another opinion that it is against 13 breaches that the Greeks breaches in the walls of the soreg and the Hasmoneans restored. According to one opinion in the mishna, the water gate is called by its name because of water that will come out from there in the future. The gemara explains the verses in Ezekiel and Zechariah that describe this water and what its function is and where it will flow. What were the 13 tables that were in the temple and what was their use? In Solomon’s time, there were ten tables inside the hall in addition to the great table. What purpose did they serve? How were they arranged – east/west or north/south?
