Today's daf is sponsored by Michelle and Laurence Berkowitz in memory of Joy Rochwarger Balsam z"l on her 17th yahrzeit, Joy was a pioneer in women's learning and taught many students in many parts of the world. Joy wanted to teach Torah to anybody who wanted to learn, from Poland to Russia to her many students from Midreshet Moriah. Joy would have been so proud of Hadran Daf Yomi and Rabbanit Farber and to all else involved in this great endeavor. Because as Joy did, Hadran spreads Torah to anybody who wants to learn anywhere. Joy was immensely involved in all that went on in Israel as she lived here for many years. During these difficult times, may Joy's neshama be a Meilitzat Yosher to bring peace and security to the people of Israel in the State of Israel.
