Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara relates that R’ Shimon bar Yochai would dress himself for prayer.  Tosfos (Shabbos 11a) points out that this must be referring to the recital of Krias Shema since they were exempt from tefillah.  The Gemara in Brachos (24b) says that merely covering oneself is sufficient for Shema, unlike tefillah which requires proper dress.  If so why was being covered by sand not sufficient?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

What does the Gemara mean that Hashem had ‘initially intended to create two but ended up creating one’ – given the fact that there is of course no relation here to the way humans think etc.?

Eruvin 99 – עירובין צט

It seems that according to Rebbi Meir although saliva in one’s mouth is considered a separate entity (with regards to din of Mashkin and Hechsher) there is no concern of carrying saliva on Shabbos.  What is the difference?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Mishnah cites the reason of ‘Ein ladavar sof’ as the basis for not-concern with Chametz being dragged around.  Why can’t we simply permit due to the fact that it is a double safek: 1) he may not have dragged 2) he may have already consumed the Chametz which he delivered?
