About Us

The great Talmudic commentators of the past century have produced some of the most profound and penetrating Talmudic analyses in history. These writings offer us a window into the profound depth and insight of Jewish law and tradition. But often these ideas are not accessible to many people because of their complexity. We are making available audio presentations of some of these ideas by Rabbi Elisha Friedman of Harrisburg, PA, to make these insights more widely accessible.
