WATS a interesting gemara to learn?April 29, 2012 4:01 am at 4:01 am #900014147Participant
Avodah Zara Daf 8a; All about how the winter solstice came about, and accompanying celebrations etc.
Or Arachin Daf 15, after dealing with the consequences of Loshon Horo in Tazria Metzoro.
or the very last Amud of Makkos, as we are just a 1/4 year away from Tisha b’Ov.April 29, 2012 4:04 am at 4:04 am #900015
Pesachim 49b.April 29, 2012 4:10 am at 4:10 am #900016
Yitay: My favorite. See the Ben Yehoyada there.April 29, 2012 4:16 am at 4:16 am #900017dhl144Member
A fun mesechet I learnt a few months ago was Rosh Hashana and it was espacially fun bc it was nogaya…Try it When is this learning gonna be?April 29, 2012 4:42 am at 4:42 am #900018
Took me some time to find what you mean, but now I see what he says about autopsies. Is that what you were referring to? Wow.
I was once in an alleyway behind Ben Yehuda Street at about three in the morning when I saw some hippyish looking guy sitting there with a guitar singing some obscure words. I inclined my ear and tried to make out what he was saying, and then I realized I already knew the words. He was singing, “?? ??? ?? ????? ??? ??????? ?????”…April 29, 2012 5:45 am at 5:45 am #900019
Yitay: That autopsy piece is absolutely Ayom V’nora. It’s one of my favorite pieces of Torah anywhere, ever. I don’t think anyone would ever Pasken it L’ma’aseh, though, even if the Ben Ish Chai said it. I think I’ve brought it down in the CR before, haven’t I?April 29, 2012 6:10 am at 6:10 am #900020
Sam – Perhaps, I don’t recall. I won’t forget it now though, that’s for sure.April 29, 2012 7:47 am at 7:47 am #900021

As far as Lma’aseh is concerned, who gets to determine who is included? Or does the very fact that one requests it prove that he is eligible?April 29, 2012 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #900023
Sam2: Mamish fascinating, it also took me a while to find,thanks.April 29, 2012 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #900024
gemara in sukka 5a and meilah 17b on visiting rome and seeing things from the bais hamikdash. There are many more sources of seeing different items like the menorah and titus brain on a scale I believe, in medrashim and in the yerhusalmi.April 29, 2012 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #900025ZeesKiteParticipantApril 29, 2012 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #900026

Thanks a lot, Sam4321.
The Maharal in Be’er Hagola deals with that Gemara in a different way. He says that although it would be theoretically be appropriate, every person, as long as he is alive, has the potential to become a Talmud Chacham.April 30, 2012 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #900030
A great Gemara that is actually pertinent to this discussion is Eiruvin 64, the Memra of Rav Acha Bar Chanina.April 30, 2012 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #900031pcozMember
HaLeivi – you are allowed to use the cover of a sefer torah to bury a meis mitzva – the chasam sofer explains this is becuase when a person is alive they have the possibility to do an aveira but when they die they don’t so they now have the kedusha of a sefer torahApril 30, 2012 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #900032not a modMember

The era has finally arrived to be focusing on Yerushalmi as we are on the final approach to Bi’as haMoshiach.
Yerushalmi is so incredibly fascinating, and no excuse when we give Din vCheshbon to haShem [@ after 120] for not having learned Yerushalmi, because B’H we are piecemeal getting an English Yerushalmi, already on several tractates, and more in the offing.May 1, 2012 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #900034
Gemara Megillah 7b, what happened when one of the Amoraim got drunk.May 8, 2012 4:57 am at 4:57 am #900035

you have to learn gemara because it is gemara and not because it is interesting!!!!
