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 https://plus.google.com/

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!!
