Welcome to the Daily Daf Differently. In this episode, Rabbi Jan R. Uhrbach looks at Masechet Yoma Daf 88. What happens when our limits and flaws – our humanity –reassert themselves just on Yom Kippur, the day when we’re striving to be like the angels? Masechet Yoma draws to a close with a discussion of impurity arising on the “purest” day of the year.
