Women Teaching Women – the Daf Yomi
A Page a Day, concluding the Seven Year Talmud Cycle

This summer, the Jewish world will celebrate the completion of the 12th Daf Yomi Cycle on August 2nd, the 14 of Av. Study of a page a day of the Babylonian Talmud was established in 1923 and enables Jews around the world to complete the entire Talmud in a seven-and-a-half year cycle.

Seven-and-a-half years ago Matan launched the first and only Daf Yomi class taught exclusively by women for women.

The initiative was spearheaded by the Matan Talmud Program and its graduates. Initially, 10 working women, students and retirees made the commitment to study the daily page of Talmud. The group quickly grew to over 30 regular participants. The Daf Yomi teachers are Matan-trained Talmud scholars.

“This is a historic day for Jewish women’s scholarship. Women have once again proven that they are capable of the same learning qualities as men. Matan is proud to be part of this and we plan to continue advancing women’s learning in every way possible,” Matan Chancellor Malke Bina said on the occasion of the siyum.

Please join us on August 2nd for this historic and revolutionary event – the celebration of the group’s completion of the Daf Yomi cycle.

The event will be held at Matan, Rashbag 30, Jerusalem Israel. Learning starts at 8:10 am and the ceremony will follow at 9 am.
