Today’s Daf discusses which kings ruled over the entire world and suggests from the following verse that Darius was one such ruler. Following Daniel’s departure from the lion’s den unscathed, the verse states, “King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations and languages, may your peace multiply.”
Tragically, our nation is not currently at peace. What can we do for Israel thousands of miles away?
