Daily Classes

Daf Yomi 


Sun: 8:50 AM; Mon-Tues 5:20pm, Wed-Fri 7:20am Sun-Mon taught by Nat Lewin, Tues–Shabbat taught by Rabbi Antine. On Shabbat @ 8:15 AM Weekly Daf Yomi Review: taught by David Felsen and/or Jud Subar. 

Daf Yomi, "page of the day" or "daily folio") is a daily regimen of learning the Oral Torah and its commentaries (also known as the Gemara), in which each of the 2,711 pages of the Babylonian Talmud are covered in sequence. Under this regimen, the entire Talmud is completed, one day at a time, in a cycle of seven and a half years. Tens of thousands of Jews worldwide study in the Daf Yomi program, and over 300,000 participate in the Siyum HaShas, an event celebrating the culmination of the cycle of learning. Following morning services each day, learning a page of the Talmud is being taught and learned.  Participants are welcome to attend on a daily basis and/or when your schedule allows.  Teaching and learning occurs in a very relaxed setting and no prior Judaic knowledge is required. Many members of Beth Sholom participate in this beautiful tradition of learning and we often have special Daf Yomi programs; we welcome new participants! Check the calendar for updates. 



Torah, Rashi and Commentaries Mondays 1:30 pm 

The Rashi and Other Commentaries Class at Beth Sholom has been studying the Chumash in depth. We now will turn our attention to The Wisdom Literature of the Torah and the Apocrypha. The Wisdom Literature includes Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Book of Job, some of Psalms, and the Song of Songs. From the Apocrypha we will look at Ben Sirah, the Wisdom of Solomon and the Book of Baruch. We will also discuss the wisdom literature of Israel's neighbors. We will continue to use the extremely wide range of interpreters available.

These include Talmud and Medrash, classical commentaries and modern commentators, translators and academic studies. 

We are currently studying Mishle, the book of Proverbs.
All are welcome to join us on Monday's at 1:30 in the Beth Sholom library for the class. No background in these topics is required.
