Many Jews feel shut-out of the age-old tradition of Talmud study.  They may be curious, but find Talmud foreign, complex and inaccessible.  MyShiur Talmud Learning Initiative is an innovative entry to this magnificent study.  Students need no prior knowledge of Talmud.  The only prerequisite is an open mind.

MyShiur contains unique skill-building techniques including practice of basic Gemara vocabulary, mastering key conceptual phrases, learning to investigate the interface between the Written Law and the Oral Law and developing the ability to analyze the text of the Talmud.

MyShiur is the perfect solution for students ready to take their Jewish studies to the next level as well as for Yeshiva schools looking for innovative ways to help students tackle Gemara.
