Learn Talmud at Your Own Pace with Rabbi Steven Wernick

One of Judaism’s greatest strengths is its affinity for diverse opinions and the debate, for the “sake of Heaven” to implement God’s will in our lives. The Talmud is the source from which this affinity for debate and the code of Jewish halakhah (law) is derived.

For many, the study of Talmud can seem overwhelming. In this weekly Talmud learning with Rabbi Wernick, we will learn at a slow and deliberate pace, sequentially studying a single page of Talmud throughout the week, with Shabbat designated as a day for personal review. This fall we will study Tractate Berakhot, the very first tractate of the Talmud.

No previous experience is necessary and students are invited to participate and drop in to our shiur as they are available. Participants will be encouraged to use materials on or purchase the Koren or Steinsaltz version of the tractate we are learning. These can be purchased at
