Learning the Talmud

The Talmud is an authoritative compilation of Jewish laws, ethics, philosophy, and history. Learning the Talmud is easy with these tips:

  • First of all, understand the essence of learning the Talmud and how it works. It is a record of rabbinic discussions and has two divisions: Mishna (text of the Oral law) and Gemara (discussion of the Mishnah). Many rabbinical customs are based on the Talmud. Do some advanced reading about the Talmud.
  • Visit your local synagogue and look for someone who can help you learn the Talmud. There are many Jewish scholars who can help you understand the Talmud.
  • Pick a time slot which is unlikely to be interrupted.
  • Pick a learning style that will suit you best. You can read one page per day or a section per day depending on your learning pace.
