משנה יומית

I know this is clearly not as critical as קריאת התורה but I have a very strong urge to make a big deal about this. I have been doing the משנה יומית for some time now and the program is about to complete ש"ס once again this Friday. A number of organizations have recently jumped on the bandwagon to get behind the program for the next cycle. There's one problem - they're calling it Mishnah Yomi. It's not that complicated. Mishnah is most certainly feminine.
