Online Courses

During 5775 (2014-2015) I published a series of 22 podcasts, each about 30 minutes long, as an online version of my Am Levadad Yishkon class.  The entire series can be downloaded here.

In the winter and spring of 5773 (2012-2013) I gave a weekly online class on “WebYeshiva” about King David.  The course covered the majority of the Biblical book of Shmuel, and also examined sections of other books including Divrei HaYamim, Ruth and Tehillim.   The entire archive of 17 hours of classes can be downloaded in audio or video formats from this page.

Also, included in the YU Torah files above is a series of twenty lectures I gave on the Laws of Kashrut, providing a clear and comprehensive overview to the various laws and procedures governing kosher food and a kosher kitchen.  There is also a series of ten lectures on Tehillim, and a series of lectures I gave at Matan about King Shlomo.
