I belive my cousin is one of the members of the Kollel, so if he can help me out, that would be great.
I am making a siyum on Meseches Shabbos on Shabbos,& I am now being asked to say a vort on the Mesechta.I would prefer to speak on the topic of Hakaros Hatov/Sh'vach V'hodaa. Can you tell me if there is any reference to that topic in Meseches Shabbos?If not ,I would like to speak about Purim.(I am sure there are plenty of references , so can you list a few?)I apologize,I realize this is short notice so if you can help me ,Thank you very much.
I apologize if this is not the right place to send this e-mail.
Here are a few sources that you might find helpful. I will ask your cousin if he has anything to add, BE"H.
