Rabbi Jacob Steinmetz -“No Artscroll Necessary: Who Says We Have to Understand What We Learn?”


On Sunday, July 16, at 6:45 p.m., Meylekh Viswanath discussed a Shabbat he recently spent with the Bnei Noah of Vishakapatnam on the eastern coast of India. Most of the Bnei Noah are former Christians who were dissatisfied with the contradictions they see in the Christian understanding of Biblical sources and look instead to the Hebrew Bible and to the Jewish view of the obligations of Gentiles.

 

 

Daf HaShavua

I am thrilled to inform you that there have already been over 35 respondents to the sign-up sheet for more Torah study during the year ahead.  I am confident that there are many more who would gain immensely by committing to more Torah study, particularly the daf hashavua program. At 9:05 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings (to end in time for the 9:30 maariv), a brief shiur, presenting approximately 1/3 of that week's daf, will be given in the beis medrash.  Needless to say, individuals are certainly encouraged to prepare with a chavrusa (for which we are happy to arrange), review the daf and explore teh daf in even greater depth. However, even if one can only commit to a total of one hour a week, this is an incredible opportunity to participate in an international learning project, which enables one to reach new heights and milestones in personal Torah growth.  Please follow the link below to sign up for this exciting initiative.

If you are looking for additional review (or if you miss a shiur), I would be honored if you considering listening to my shiur that will be featured 4x a week on the OUTorah website.  

https://www.ou.org/torah/gemara/#?post_terms.gemara-series.name.unanalyzed=Daf%20Hashavua

A brand new masechta, maseches beitzah begins this coming week!   Now is the perfect opportunity to join this effort.  Please join me and at least 35 of your fellow members in this great undertaking.   

For those who will be in Teaneck for the first days of sukkos, I will be giving the opening shiur on Beitzah 2a on Tuesday, following the 6 pm mincha.  

Looking forward to celebrating with you at the siyum on maseches beitzah in 9 months!

Resouces on Mesechet Beitza

OU Torah will be hosting audio shiurim, marei mekomot, vocabulary and bechinot on a dedicated page and more resources will be available online. Please share this link with your synagogue membership.
