Baruch Dayan HaEmes. In the days before the pandemic, Reb Mechel Schiffenbauer, a"h, gave the Daf Yomi shiur in the beis medrash at Agudath Israel of America's national headquarters in Manhattan at 42 Broadway. This photo depicts the widespread acceptance of the class. Of note, one of the shiur’s attendees on this particular day was Chaver Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky, Rosh HaYeshiva of Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia. Reb Mechel, a talmid chacham of great magnitude, gave the shiur at the Agudah for over twenty years, in addition to delivering two other Daf Yomi shiurim daily.
