Biblical Archaeology

Not just Biblical archaeology, but Talmudic archaeology. Also Jewish Thought archaeology, Tefillah archaeology and Kosher archaeology.

What do we mean? We’ll explain.

On OU Torah, we have a lot of great series and you’ll find many of them on our home page, labeled “Featured.” But, as the late-night infomercials like to remind us, “that’s not all!” As with archaeology, sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find a buried treasure.

You see, lots of great series have ended their runs. Sometimes, we later re-run them for the benefit of a new audience. (Currently re-running series include Tzarich Iyun by Rabbi Dr. Ari Zivotofsky and Shemoneh Esrei by yours truly.) But many (most!) concluded series are not being re-run at any given time! And, as the saying goes, if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you!

Scroll to the top of OU Torah – there, you’ll find a series of drop-down items labeled Parsha, Nach, etc. Clicking on those will show you many (but not all!) of the series on OU Torah. (Select “All Parsha,” “All Nach,” etc. to see all series in any given category.) Now go back to OU Torah and scroll to the bottom of the page. There, you’ll find ALL our series listed. And there are some hidden gems for you to discover!

Reviewing parsha? Don’t overlook such series as Rav Hirsch on the Parsha and Spirituality in the Parsha, among others. Nach? Try A Journey Through Nach. Mitzvot? The ever-popular Charlie Harary explains The Six Constant Mitzvot. Machshava? Learn from the Talmud Yerushalmi in Lessons from Eretz Yisrael.

This is just a very small representative sample. There’s much, much more, so be sure to dig deep. Look for these series and more on OU Torah and using the OU Torah app!
