Women’s Daf Yomi Study: The Confluence of Three Religious Revolutions

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

On January 5, 2020, the Israel-based Hadran organization hosted the first international Women’s “Daf Yomi – Siyum ha-Shas” ceremony in Jerusalem, marking completion of the entire Babylonian Talmud during the course of the prior seven years of daily learning. Since then, a growing and diverse group of women across the globe have begun attending daily daf yomi classes.

In his lecture, Ferziger will analyze this novel initiative through the prisms of: the history of the world-wide daf yomi study, which began in 1924, grew dramatically from the late 20th century and remains a predominantly male activity; and the history of Orthodox feminism – focusing on its transnational characteristics that have become more apparent since the pandemic.
