Brachot: An Introduction to Gemara


Wednesday 3:00AM
add this shiur

Course Description

In this course we will develop Talmud-learning skills through the study of the fourth chapter in Tractate Brachot. We will learn how to read the text with the help of the commentators to reach a better understanding of what the rabbis were trying to teach us.

We will begin by familiarizing ourselves with what the gemara IS and where it comes from and it’s place in our tradition. After that we will focus on building essential skills and Aramaic know-how to allow participants to eventually learn on their own.
If you’re a beginner who has always been intimidated by learning the Talmud, this is the class for you!

Brachot: First shur and a discussion about what Gemara is

Dear all

Thank you SO much for joining me this evening. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did! This evening we put the Gemara into historical context so as better be able to understand why we learn it and how to learn it. Pls God next week we approach the daf.

Additionally please find attached the sefer I mentioned in shiur- The Encyclopedia of the Scholars of the Talmud (which I don't believe has been translated). There is no need to purchase this book for shiur but it an outstanding resource

Please be in touch with any thoughts/comments or feedback!

Hope to see you all next week

Brachot: An Introduction to Gemara

Dear students

It was great learning with all of you again his evening! We finished the time line of the gemara and discussed Mishna and Tosefta and how it all gets codified and why - all to prepare us to better be able to lean gemara next week!!

Some resources discussed in shiur this evening:

  • Rabbi Binyamin Lau’s four-book series, The Sages.  
  • Rabbi Berel Wein’s two books:  The Oral Law of Sinai (on the tannaim) and Vision and Valor (on the amoraim)
  • Mishnayot with Kehati (in English if needed)
  • Tosefta can be found on Sefaria (only in Hebrew) and the back of your Gemara if you have one

 

Thank you all so much for taking the time to learn with me! See you next week when we start learning the actual daf!
