Thirty Days

March 25, 2016, by

It’s Shushan Purim as I write this (Happy Shushan Purim if you’re reading it today!), which means that it’s time to start thinking about Pesach (Passover). The very first Passover law in Shulchan Aruch is “We investigate the laws of Passover for thirty days before Passover” (Orach Chaim 229:1). That’s today, so here we are! […]

Mishna Yomit – New Cycle Starts March 30!

March 10, 2016, by

The OU’s Mishna Yomit program will start a new cycle on March 30, 2016. With Mishna Yomit, listeners can learn two mishnayos a day and complete all of Shas Mishnayos in a little under six years. In the previous cycle, Mishna Yomit offered a daily audio shiur delivered by an educator, usually from OU Torah […]

Tell Me Every Day by Day by Day

February 2, 2016, by

(That’s a quote from the 1985 hit Day by Day. I could have quoted the 1971 hit of the same name but that’s from Godspell and then things start to get tricky.) Every (non-yom tov week)day, OU Torah adds new content, which appears on our home page under the heading “Featured.” And, for those of […]

¿Se ha dado de cuenta?

January 14, 2016, by

Durante various años, OU Torah ha estado conduciendo Perlas de la Tora por el Rabino Israel Lashak – inicialmente se ofreció en audio y ahora en video. Nosotros hemos estado especialmente orgullosos de esta series, ya que nos ha permitido compartir conocimientos de la Parsha y las fiesta Hebreas, con los miembros de habla hispana […]

Biblical Archaeology

January 6, 2016, by

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 […]

The Time is NOW!

December 17, 2015, by

The OU’s Nach Yomi – a chapter of Neviim (Prophets) and Kesuvim (Writings) a day for two years – begins again TODAY (December 17)! The OU just completed its fourth Nach Yomi cycle and, over the past eight years, thousands have learned the Jewish Bible in entirety, including such Books as Isaiah, Ezekiel, Iyov (Job), […]

‘Tis the Season

November 13, 2015, by

It’s Kislev and that means it’s time for everybody’s favorite winter holiday! (Okay, maybe not everybody’s favorite winter holiday – some people are no doubt huge fans of Tu b’Shevat – but it’s certainly ours!) That’s right, we’ve begun the countdown to Hannu Hanukk Chanukah! True, we have no Chanukah-themed coffee cups, but we’re used […]

Back to Business as Usual

October 12, 2015, by

Wow. Tishrei sure is a long month, isn’t it? Rosh Hashana goes into Yom Kippur, which goes into Succos, which goes into Simchas Torah. And no matter how the calendar falls – whether the holidays fall on Shabbos, next to Shabbos, or nowhere near Shabbos – each permutation has its own challenges. This year, for […]
