Title: The Spirits Behind The Law: The Talmudic Scholars

As we study the Talmud, we come across the names of our great Sages, usually attached to a particular law or halachic position.

Letters To The Editor

Deja Vu    I once read that a definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. So what...

Title: Rashi’s Daughters, Book One – Yocheved

Ms. Anton's book falls into that genre termed historical fiction, but in this extensive volume of over 360 pages, one can begin to wonder if Ms. Anton had a fly on the wall, so realistic are her characterizations. One could wonder it her real calling is as a "medievalist."

Masterdaf.com – Talmud On The Web

One of the newest websites to sprout up on the Internet is Masterdaf.com. A few weeks ago, www.masterdaf.com appeared on the Internet as an experimental website, and, as of recently, is fully functional. Masterdaf.com is not just another one of those pointless dot com websites that have nothing to offer or, even worse, try to sell you a worthless product.

Soncino Classics Collection

As the holiday of Shavuos rapidly approaches and the days of Sefirah draw to an end, what better way to prepare oneself for the holiday of receiving the Torah than to actually increase one's familiarity with it? The Soncino Classics Collection on CD-ROM is a great accompaniment to your studies whether you a beginner or a scholar.

Q & A: Effort And Diligence In Torah Study (Part I)

QUESTION: I recently read your Daf Yomi column (JP, June 13, 2003), where you cited the Chikrei Lev's comments regarding the standard of 'Sinai' in Torah study, that is, having extensive knowledge of the Torah. He stated that this is not as important today because the Mishna has been recorded.My question is: Was the Mishna not recorded in Rashi's time? Commenting on the first verse in Parashat Bechukotai, Rashi notes (based on Sifra) that "Im bechukotai tele'chu" means"shetih'yu amelim baTorah." In yeshiva I was taught that this means that one must toil with much effort to learn and understand Torah. If so, how can one not be expected to have anextensive knowledge and yet be amel baTorah?Zvi Kirschner(Via Email)
