A record 40,000 participants from more than 130 countries have participated in Daf Yomi through All Daf, the Orthodox Union’s (OU) innovative free digital app that has made Gemara learning accessible to every Jew whenever it is convenient for him to learn. The international learning program finished the tractate of Eiruvin during the last week of November.
The app’s shiurim have been accessed by Jews in more than 130 countries on six continents. Daf learners in countries such as Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, France, Gibraltar, Jordan, Kuwait, Iceland, Iran, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sudan, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States are all using the app to learn the daily Daf portion.
On Monday, November 23, participants started the tractate of P’sachim, and those learning daily with the Daf Yomi cycle will finish it on March 22, just five days prior to the start of the holiday it focuses on.
In order to excite more Daf Yomi learners, All Daf has launched a “P’sachim for Pesach” campaign, which includes raffles and prizes. Individuals who commit to learning the tractate and finishing it by Monday, April 12, 2020, are eligible to enter into a raffle with a grand prize of a trip for two to California and a tour of Herzog’s winery, along with VIP reservations at the Tierra Sur restaurant at the Herzog Wine Cellars. Other prizes include gift cards and swag. For more information or to register, please visit: www.alldaf.org/pesachim.
Beyond offering shiurim on the daily Daf, All Daf offers participants of all backgrounds the opportunity to enhance their learning with a host of related topics including Jewish history, lomdus, Tanach, and other sources and resources. Daily shiurim on the Daf are offered by world-renowned magidei shiur such as Rabbi Moshe Elefant, Rabbi Shalom Rosner, Rabbi Sruly Bornstein, Rabbi Eli Mansour, Rabbi Shlomie Schwartzberg, and Rabbi Eli Stefansky. All Daf introduces participants to fascinating subjects in the Daf with written and video content from teachers such as Dr. Henry Abramson, Dean of the Lander College of Arts and Sciences, on historical subjects related to the day’s daf, and Rabbi Moe Mernick, author, speaker, and educator, on daily daf moments of inspiration, among others.
All Daf is available in the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and at www.alldaf.org.
