from dream to opportunity
Finishing Shas, while certainly one of the greatest achievements a Jew can accomplish, is a goal that has been generally viewed as unrealistic given its length and complexity. That is, until recently. The past half-century has seen a dramatic popularization of the R’ Meir Shapiro’s ingenious system called Daf HaYomi, in which Jews the world over learn the same daf, completing the 2,771 dafim in seven-and-a-half years. This transforms for tens of thousands what was once a lofty dream into an exciting possibility.
Meeting The Need
The current international “Daf Yomi fever” has created an increased demand for online tools that can facilitate learning and reviewing the daf, that present the daf in a manner that is scholarly, yet accessible, and in a format that is both interactive and user-friendly. RealClearDaf/Daf Berurah was created to meet this demand. RCD’s audio shiurim deliver a lucid, accurate, and engaging presentation of the pashut p’shat (straightforward interpretation) of the Gemara’s give-and-take, based primarily on the commentary of Rashi.
The shiurim make explicit the heart of the issue at hand, the root of the frequent machlokesim (disputes), and the subtle distinctions that are embedded “between the lines” throughout the Gemara’s endless quest for the Truth. If RCD reaches one person, and helps him understand one section of Gemara, it will have done a great deal, for the merit of Torah is without limit. But RCD’s mission is to create a Daf Yomi experience that thousands, who trust in its accuracy, clarity, and ability to captivate, will turn to each day.Your visiting the website is greatly appreciated, and may we all finish Shas in Yerushalayim with Moshiach here and the Bayis Shlishi built, bimhara biyamanu. Amen.
