Administrative Oops!

Hello all,

In completing the migration to the new Daily Daf site http://www.the-daf.com, I mistakenly re-subscribed all the email subscribers on the old site. So if you had subscribed, you may have gotten an email a few minutes ago (Monday 5/16 11:40am) asking for you to confirm this subscription request. You may safely either ignore or confirm this request.

What I will do shortly is add your email address to the NEW site http://www.the-daf.com, which will generate another confirmation request to subscribers’ email. If you wish to continue receiving these posts by email, please confirm this second request.

If you had not previously subscribed to receive The Daily Daf posts by email, this does not apply to you, but of course you may subscribe to future posts at the new site http://www.the-daf.com.

Sorry for any confusion!

Dov W.
