Gemarah Beitzah with

Rabbi Avrohom Weiss


Rabbi Avrohom Weiss 

  leads an amud yomi gemarah Beitzah shiur for men.


Monday- Thursday evenings, from 9:05 - 9:55


If you like the idea of daf yomi but were intimidated by the length and commitment, then Amud Yomi is for you. This shiur is for both beginners and the more advanced, geared to covering an extensive amount of blatt while generating stimulating discussion on the gemarah. Rabbi Weiss is an experienced educator having been teaching for over ten years.
