Students learn Talmud using traditional, rigorous methods, learning texts in their original languages, Aramaic and Hebrew. It’s hard work, but the reward is a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the material. With the aid of an ocean of dictionaries and a desire to learn, you can do it too! And once you taste the freedom of reading for yourself, you won’t want to go back.
Any adult Jew is welcome. Open level. Beginners will level up through the natural challenge of grammar and vocabulary; advanced students will have extra reading from rishonim and aḥaronim.
