Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Rava asked, since they are all immersing in a Mikva (in addition to taking the shower) than there is no damage being done.  But why is there no concern that perhaps occasionally they will neglect the Mikva altogether, since they have the erroneous perception that the shower is the primary purifier?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Beis Shamai offer two reasons why the bracha on the ‘Day’ precedes the bracha on the wine 1) since the day is the catalyst 2) the day arrives first.  When the Gemara asks from havdalah (where we see that the bracha on wine is recited first) why can’t the Gemara answer that havdalah doesn’t have two reasons (only the first but not the second) since the wine is present before the weekday arrives?
