Climbing mount Talmud

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/cover_story/article/climbing_mount_talmud_20120808

It is a commitment like few others. Seven and a half years of daily study — every day, no time off, no vacations, no holiday breaks, in sickness and health, at home and while traveling. Started almost 80 years ago, by a rabbi named Meir Shapiro, the study of the Daf Yomi — literally, a page a day — this week ends its 12th cycle of learning and immediately begins its 13th. As I write this post I’m still undecided: Should I, can I, will I?
