Interesting Recent Links - Vayehi 5774

where I found this picture of Rav Ovadia Yosef as a snowman and 3 more like it at different angles (which, while a nice gesture, may be more halachicly problematic than a regular snowman):

Here is something else about today's daf in Daf Yomi:

Well, I just got a tip from an acquaintance. Today is the tenth of Tevet. The daf Yomi page for the day is Yoma 35. On that page, the Gemorrah relates the famous story of Hillel HaZaqen, during the month of Tevet (actually it says tekufat Tevet which could include Shevat and Adar Rishon too), lying flat on the roof of the Beit HaMedrash of Avtalyon and Shemaya to drink in the words of Torah being spoken. He was on top of the roof all night long ON EREV SHABBAT listening when 3 amot (five feet) of snow fell on him. They found him the next morning and scraped him off the roof and gave him a place in the Beit HaMedrash in which he could not afford to pay the entrance fee. Yes, Hillel was that poor, but that committed to learning Torah. And I look outside, and it is snowing. five feet of snow in the forecast?? I don't know, but what a Daf for Daf yomi!!
