Q. We are about to start in the Daf Shiur the tractate of Beitza, but some in our group have suggested to learn instead the next Gemara of Rosh Hashana,since it seems to be right on time now. Can we change the order and learn first Rosh Hashana and then follow with Beitza?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is better not to change, since you will be abandoning the many thousands that learn following the proscribed established order. Our Sages teach “Al tifrosh min hatzibur,” or “Do not separate yourself from the many.”
Besides, we may add, the number of applicable dafim is rather small and the beginning of Maseches Beitza also applies to Rosh Hashana.
