The Daily Daf is a blog for those who learn daf yomi or who would like to connect in some way to the daf yomi of the day.
This blog is an outgrowth of the daily daf yomi shiur that Rabbi Dov Linzer gives at the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale from 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM. The shiur is given to men and women, from a wide variety of backgrounds, in a clear and accessible style, and with an emphasis on the conceptual issues of the daf.
The blog contains the following elements:
- Blog postings – Insights and essays on the daf. These are posted 2-3 times a week by Rabbi Dov Linzer. Guest posts are welcome. Please email R. Linzer if you would like to submit a guest post or become a regular contriubtor.
- Audio Recordings – MP3s of the daf, which can be downloaded as well as synced to an iPod.
- Video Recordings – Adobe Connect recording of the daf, with whiteboard and chat window. Can be viewed on your computer and smartphone.
- Watch the Daf Live – Instructions on how to register and watch the daf live, over your computer or your iPhone or Android phone.
- Resources – Pdfs of the related mesekhet; annotated source sheets on topics related to the daf; articles related to the daf; maps, diagrams, etc.
- Video and Audio Archives – Access to months of recorded audio and video.
Comments are welcome!
It is also recommended that you subscribe to the blog (see the upper right panel) so that you will be notified when a new posting goes up.
