The following article was published this week. Click here to read. A 21st century beit midrash
In today’s daf the daughters of Tzlofchad are praised for their intelligence and for their ability to interpret texts (and their righteousness that they didn’t marry until age 40 – they waited until they found men who were worthy). They weren’t afraid to stand up before the people and demand what they thought was rightfully theirs. And as a result, they were respected and received what was rightfully theirs. The Oral Torah, with the Gemara at its center, belongs to both men and women and should be taught and interpreted by both men and women to men and women.
Daf Yomi for Women is the only online Daf Yomi Shiur given by a woman. The website is a free resource for the benefit of women and men around the world who desire to learn Gemara. Although there is no charge for listening to Daf Yomi for Women, there are costs associated with production and maintenance. Please make a donation today, sponsor a day of learning, or become a member to support the continued efforts of Daf Yomi for Women. Please note that donations are not tax deductible.

Dafyomi4women.org is the portal for daf yomi studies for women.
Now including more than 900 shiurim, dafyomi4women.org is the first and only site where one can hear a daily Talmud class taught by a woman. The classes are taught in Israel by Michelle Cohen Farber, a graduate of Midreshet Lindenbaum’s scholars program with a BA in Talmud and Tanach from Bar-Ilan University. Michelle has taught Talmud and Halacha at Midreshet Lindenbaum, Pelech high school and MATAN. She lives in Ra’anana with her husband and their five children.
Each morning the daf yomi class is delivered to a cadre of adult women in Ra’anana and then immediately uploaded and available for podcast and downloading. Additionally, worksheets that organize the daf and help facilitate understanding can be found on the website. Dafyomi4women.org reaches women who can now have access to a woman’s perspective on the most essential Jewish traditional text. Dafyomi4women.org represents a revolutionary step in advancing women’s Torah study around the globe.
