  1. The gemara brings the story of Choni the Circle Maker who made a circle when he prayed for rain why did he make a circle it represents life is a circle HASHEM should make his midas hadin into midas haracamim
  2. The pasuk says dont swear falsely first in rabim then yachid why both Choni and Eliyahu made a shivua (Choni there should be rain Eliyahu rain should stop) if one of them was answered and the other one wasnt that would cause a cilluel HASHEM
  3. When Choni died how did the people know Eliyahu told them
  4. R Chaim Shimulevitz and MICTAV ELIYAHU ask why did Choni want to die b/c the rabbis were not useing his teaching method or they were not not listening to him
  5. The gemara brings the story of Aba Chilkia who didnt let the rabbis be outside alone with his wife b/c of yichud Minchas Yitzchak and Rav Shilomo Zalman Aurbach ask can a man and women go on an elevator or is it a problem of yichud they answer if they know there not going to be on the elevator for the shiur then its ok if not and they will be on the elevator for the shiur then its a problem(daf yomi digest halacha highlight)
