Over 100,000 yidden around the globe look forward to experiencing The Siyum of Daf Yomi, which will be hosted by The Agudah for the thirteenth time in world history. While the simcha and anticipation are felt by all of Klal Yisroel, none feel it as potently as those who have been Lomdei HaDaf for the longest periods of time.
Learning the Daf has transformed all of Klal Yisroel since HaRav Meir Schapira zt”l introduced this revolutionary concept at The Agudah’s Knessiah Gedolah in Vienna; and it has transformed the lives of every lomeid, especially the Lomdei HaDaf.
No doubt, the senior-most Lomdei HaDaf of the 13th worldwide Siyum HaShas have benefitted from the Daf’s greatest impact. This inspires them and their generations of offspring – among the rest of Klal Yisroel.
Leading psychologist Rabbi Dr. Yosef Shimon Rosenshein, a trailblazer in our community’s mental health and educational realm for decades, shares how he has not missed learning the Daf for even one day since 1961. With over eight cycles behind him, Rabbi Dr. Rosenshein looks forward to continuing his daily highlight ad mei’ah v’esrim – serving as an inestimable zechus in both this world and the World to Come.
“The first thing I do after saying Modeh Ani and Birchas haTorah is the blatt,” says Rabbi Dr. Rosenshein. “Never give up…just keep on going.”
