Jewish History in Daf Yomi

Jewish History in Daf Yomi, a project of the OU Daf Yomi Initiative, presents brief videos (2-5 minutes) on a variety of historical subjects related to the specific page in the Daf Yomi program of Talmud study. At present over 150 videos are online at www.ou.org/dafyomi and in the OU Torah App, and will be featured in AllDaf, a new App currently under development. In the meantime, the growing number of videos (a total of 2,711 are projected) are serviced by this rudimentary index.

How to Use the Index:

  1. In a separate window, open up www.ou.org/dafyomi.
  2. Click here to open up the General Index (alphabetized by topic).
  3. Alternatively, click here to open up the Subject Index (alphabetized by subject: Biography, Culture, Economics, Geography, Medicine, Numismatics, Technology, The Talmudic Page, Weights and Measurements).
  4. Note the Tractate and Daf of the desired video.
  5. Return to www.ou.org/dafyomi and select the Tractate and Daf from the drop-down menu.
  6. Enjoy the videos in good health!
