What People are Saying About This Series:
I am really enjoying the JH in daf series. My father zl was a “daf yomi man” who completed over 4 cycles of the daf. He really would have enjoyed meeting you. He also was particularly fond of the personalities of the daf, which you bring to life.
congrats on the bechoros “siyum”-I know that you actually finished a while ago, but since the cycle has developed its own measure of sanctity (note the multiple connections between the daf and the parshas Hashavua). Completion of Bechoros actually represents the end of two cycles of the daf that I have learned with Dr Jeger (official siyum to follow soon)
