Online Talmud Class begins this Thursday evening!

Want to learn Talmud with Rabbi Isaacs via the internet?

We'll have our first online Talmud class at 7:30 pm on Thursday evening.

If you want to read the text in advance, you can download it by clicking here.  It is a selection from the Ein Yaakov, tractate Ta'anit.

Here are the instructions on how to prepare your computer:

and click on “Install voice and video chat”. It will take a few minutes, so let it finish its installation. Depending on your computer, you may have to restart before it will work.
2) Go to

and sign in with your gmail account if you have one (if not, click on ‘sign up’ at the top)
a. It will ask you to sign up for Google+…make sure you do this!

3) When it asks you to ‘add people’, search for “Rachel Isaacs” and add me! (it’s the one with a picture of me in a black robe and red academic scarf -- see above.)

4) A half hour before the class, I will send out an email to everyone of my google+ friends with a link to the class. Click on the link and wait to see me!!
