How to Read Gemara: Pesachim Chapter 1
This shiur with Rabbi Chaim Brovender is open to serious students with little or no background in gemara learning and a high level of commitment and motivation in their studies. Students will be expected to prepare materiel for shiurim in advance and to attend classes regularly. The regular gemara shiur will take place twice a week. This semester we will be studying Tractate Pesachim, Chapter 1.
This shiur is in memory of Dr. Leon Kronitz, of blessed memory. To find out more about Dr. Kronitz and his contributions towards Jewish education, please click here.
