Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara says that Avraham established Shacharis, Yitzchak established Mincha etc. – but don’t we know that Avraham kept the entire Torah (Yoma 28b) which presumably would include all the tefillos as well?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The bracha on rice according to the Chachamim is Mezonos before and Shehakol after.  The reason for this is because although rice is somewhat equated to the other grains in its sustenance abilities hence the Mezonos, nevertheless the bracha of Al Hamichya is reserved strictly for the Seven Species of Eretz Yisrael which is referred to in Al Hamichya.  But how do we understand the opinion of Rabban Gamliel that one recites Al Hamichya after rice, since it is not a species unique to Eretz Yisrael?

Shabbos 9 – שבת ט

The Mishna teaches that one should not begin a wedding meal or conduct Din prior to Mincha, lest he come to perhaps miss the Tefillah.  We learn elsewhere (Shabbos 10a) that conducting a Din is a Mitzvah, as certainly is attending a wedding.  Why should one not begin the Mitzvah at hand, even if it may lead to forfeiting a later Mitzvah – since we know that one who is involved in a Mitzvah is exempt from doing another?
