What You’ll Need!

Our Talmud Text

We will be learning from Masechet Bava Metzia, daf 58a. A digital copy of our daf (page) is available in this portal—we suggest your print it. Or, if you have a full Masechet Bava Metzia, that’s even better!


We strongly encourage folks to learn from the physical, printed dictionary whenever possible! The Jastrow Dictionary is essential for your learning. You can find this dictionary at your local Jewish bookstore, or order online directly from the publisher.

In addition to Jastrow, we recommend Yitzhak Frank’s The Practical Talmud DictionaryYou can order the Frank dictionary from your local Jewish bookstore, or directly from the publisher.

A Computer With…

To participate in shiur most fully, you will need a computer with high-speed internet access capable of supporting video conferencing. Shiur will be hosted on Zoom—we recommend downloading Zoom’s free software (Zoom Client for Meetings) for the smoothest experience. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, check out Zoom tips!
