Rabbi Fisch

The Talmud is the central text of Rabbinic Judaism and the primary source of Jewish religious law and Jewish theology. Until the advent of modernity, in nearly all Jewish communities, the Talmud was the centerpiece of Jewish cultural life and was foundational to all Jewish thought and aspirations, serving also as the guide for the daily life of Jews.

The Talmud represents the written record of an oral tradition. It provides an understanding of how laws are derived, and it became the basis for many rabbinic legal codes and customs.

To dive into this wealth of explanations about our Jewish laws and traditions, their source, the reasoning behind them, come join our Daf Yomi group lead by Rabbi Fisch.
