Shabbat 2: That’s No Introduction to Shabbat!

Shabbat is here! (well, you know)

We’re not in Kansas (or Berakhot) anymore. Masekhet Shabbat dives right in, to the middle of a halakhic discussion, using terms and concepts that we’re already supposed to know. Clearly. And yet, it works.

If you know of anyone who might want to start learning the daf with us now, please let them know what a good time it is to do so (getting in on the ground floor of a new tractate, that is).

Anne and Yardaena

Anne Gordon is the deputy editor of Ops & Blogs at The Times of Israel. She is a veteran educator, having taught in high school and post-high school institutions in Israel and America for several decades. Yardaena Osband is a pediatrician and teaches in her community and online. They both hail from Boston, proud alumna of Maimonides School, where they first learned Gemara. Talking Talmud is their conversation (via podcast) on the daf yomi. They say: "Learning the daf? We have something for you to think about. Not learning the daf? We have something for you to think about! (Along with a taste of the daf...) Join the conversation with us!"
