daily Talmud

An accessible study group for those who want to build up their consistent engagement with Jewish texts


The Talmud, built on centuries of brilliant scholarship and analysis, is one of the richest sacred texts revealing ancient practices, values, and ethical standards. It has inspired not only religious reverence, but also significant intellectual inquiry. Each week, we delve into the text, explore the teachings, and challenge our thinking. Discover how these ancient teachings can have practical relevance in your life today.

Classes are open to participants of varying skill-sets, even for those with little or no background in the Talmudic dialectic. There is a place for everyone in this program as we study a page of Talmud each day. This cycle, called Daf Yomi (daf=page, yomi=a day), syncs us up with the entire global Jewish community engaging in this practice.  


Join our daily Talmud study group, Thursdays at 11am PST / 2pm EST. To participate, register here.

Have a question about Daily Talmud? Rabbi Miller would love to hear from you!

What people say:

"Yesterday's class was superb!! I remain impressed by so many things that you do! You are able to keep us on track, share (some of) your knowledge with us, make all sorts of connections to the Jewish and secular worlds, and meet each of us where we are! Kudos to you!!"


"Talmud study has opened a window to that world for me. I love the anthropology and sociology of it all."


"The minority opinions may someday count as much as the majority opinions. It reminds us that things change the Halacha changes and we change each year that we read it."


"We have the opportunity to compare the Halacha we are practicing today with the one they were writing and studying in the Talmud... It has been very interesting how things have evolved how we keep the tradition in our own way."


"I feel very close to this amazing group and I'm grateful to Rabbi Miller for conducting it."
