You may have heard of Daf Yomi, the worldwide study of a page of Talmud a day. As wonderful as this popular endeavor is, the pace is extremely fast, perhaps a bit difficult for even advanced Talmud students to keep up with. We've decided to slow down the pace, covering one page of Talmud per week. Join us! Talmud is always best learned in a group. NO prior knowledge necessary, just a willingness to learn.
