Take One Daf Yomi

Judaism #10

As Jews around the world engage in a seven-and-a-half year cycle of Daf Yomi, reading the entire Talmud one page per day, Tablet Magazine's new podcast, Take One, will offer a brief and evocative daily read of the daf, in just about 10 minutes. New episodes will be released daily Monday through Friday.

    Using Talmud as a soapbox
    Episode I listened to was basically hosts talking about themselves and then quickly quoting the Talmud and bending it severely and using it to talk about a random topic (episode about “not knowing”). The hosts seem to “not know” but they teach anyways…

    A refreshing breath of Talmud in the morning
    Really enjoy these succinct Daf discussions! Agree more of Hudson lol
  • dafallday
    A super twisted interpretation of the Talmud. Very heretical. מצד הקליפה

    More Hudson!
    I listen every day, but today’s input from 10-year-old Hudson made me especially joyous. The simplicity of a child’s perspective during these complex and worrisome times was comforting. Thanks Hudson.

    Informative and entertaining
    I have been listening to this podcast daily for more than three years. It’s always informative and entertaining! I do try to supplement it with the 5 Minute Daf Yomi podcast on Podbean, as Liel only covers one or two sentences of the daily daf.

    A little Talmud a day…
    Just came across this podcast and have found it to be amazing. I love how the hosts connect the Talmud to some of the issues we face in a modern world. I’ve been listening to two episodes every day and really enjoy having my day made a little Talmudic
  • Mwána Comète
    So enjoyable
    Usually awesome, always enjoyable. The unpacking of Talmud — the historical explication and the modernization — is what goes on, mostly through conversation between the host and guests. Highly recommended!

    Thanks for brave Sharansky quote
    Thank you for your courage to point out the indignity of today’s political correctness and citing our great hero Nathan Sharanskyi Congrats on being nominated for the Next Big Idea book club!

    Take One every day…
    Love this podcast! Liel, as someone who is in the process of conversion and has a desire to learn as much as possible about Judaism, I just want to say thank you so much for making my days a little more Talmudic. 😊
  • Mosheh In Pittsburgh
    Daf Yomi is awesome!
    Five days a week I look forward to this podcast which opens my mind to new ways of thinking about the Bavli. Thank you, Liel, for making my days a little more Talmudic. Shkoyach!

    Where are you?
    The last two days I have not had new podcasts. I really am missing my daily dos of Talmud. I actually went back to older podcasts. Miss you Leo. Margo Carr (Miryam bat Abraham v’Sarah)
  • Ani Yehudi
    Thank you for bringing Daf Yomi to a level that a goon like me can understand.
  • StuartRand
    Terrific Podcast
    An excellent program. Selection of material, host, and guest speakers are all terrific. Very high quality production. Worth paying for but it is free at least for now.
  • nwnina44
    Love Rabbi Dovid
    I love getting a small taste of Talmud everyday and especially when R. Dovid joins.
  • lslandau
    Thank you Reb Leibowitz
    So grateful for this podcast. It reminds me of my learning experience at the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem. I’ve missed this type of engagement with texts from Jewishly literate yet compassionate and critically thinking teachers. Thank you Reb Leibowitz for all of you efforts 🪬
  • tuckjosh
    Fantastic for newbies and the well-read alike!
    Truth be told, this is the only Tablet-produced content I can stand to take in anymore. Unlike Tablet’s—and Liebowitz’s own—print content, Take One is happy, non-controversial, and non-reactionary. I recommend it to all the folks I meet interested in wading into Talmud!
  • chavachana
    Scholarly Fun
    This show is literally awesome. Full of mind, soul, and heart enriching content. I got here late, so I started on the very first episode and I’m catching up by listening every free moment.
  • SDTerp
    Fun and Informative
    I always learn something new, and often get a laugh or two along the way.
  • BGS1988
    Great podcast
    Studying Talmud is hard. It’s easy to get lost in the nitty gritty details of the discussion and miss the important truths being conveyed. Take One Daf Yomi provides clarity that informs my study every day.

    Outstanding and concise dialogue and interpretation of Daf Yomi. Keep up your wonderful work.
  • VAB 1
    A must listen.
    Entertaining, thought provoking, and worth listening too!
  • walterlouis422
    Ancient wisdom made contemporary by commentary thanks to Liell and his guests
  • xomawife
    Love it
    Such a pleasure to listen to. Makes you feel connected to these ancient texts, which by the way I studied for many years when I was in high school at a Jewish day school and I had no interest and could never understand and now I have this tremendous appreciation.
    So it began
    I’ve heard of Daf Yomi throughout my life but it seemed to distant a goal. This has enabled me to dip my toe into the ocean of what is Talmud. Thank you Liel! להצליחה!

    My Daily dose of Talmud
    Thank you for putting this into the world

    How My Day Starts
    Liel Liebowitz and his Daf Yomi learning start each day for me. This podcast is a gateway to learning I would not obtain otherwise. Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin’s deeply felt commentaries and teachings move me deeply. I am grateful this is a 7.5 year exercise!
  • Grand Rapids Fan
    Great Host; Perfect Episode Length
    I like being able to listen to each day’s episode while brewing tea or making breakfast. The episodes are quick and digestible. The host does a great job making each episode feel distinct from the others.
  • Softah 2
    Take One
    Find it a great way to start my day Really appreciate the wisdom
  • JB Katz
    Starting to fade
    At the start of the Daf cycle the pod cast was strong. Now I feel there are a couple of issues: 1. Sound quality from a majority of the callers is very poor and I cannot even listen to the episode. 2. Self promotion of the “guest” speakers. They are promoting their new book, their podcast ect. Let’s get back to the heart of the Daf and focus on making each day aka podcast the best it can with the best sound quality from the callers.
  • Desesq
    Great way to start day
    Only recently discovered this fantastic podcast and now religiously listen every day
  • jonn_msft
    Enjoyable daily Daf
    Take One is an enjoyable daily podcast from Liel Liebowitz, known as a host of Unorthodox Podcast. Every show has a guest host. Topics are loosely connected with the Daf.
  • MRClassof02
    The start of every day
    I love starting each day with the Take One podcast. It’s a great way to study Talmud in a busy life.
  • Bio Julian
    Great listen
    My first podcast every morning!
  • David Tedford Holt
    A lovely reminder of God
    I am a Christian, and always knew I was missing a great deal of cultural context when reading the Tanakh (really, both Old and New Testaments). I am greatly blessed by these conversations about the conversations about God’s presence in the minutiae of life.
  • Cooprn2011
    It’s my morning addiction
    I wake up every morning and listen, I am addicted.
  • chabad fan
    Terrific conversation with Sister Prejean.
  • erinmeredith010101
    I love this daily podcast <3
    I am so happy to have a cheerful, welcoming way to Daf Yomi. Perfect for any Jew of any denomination to engage with the joy of Talmud.
  • D_Sat
    What an absolute joy...
    I would have given 6 stars but Rabbi Dov Bashempkin does not have an entry in the Newish Jewish encyclopedia. Thanks Liel.
  • Moonybird
    Short, accessible Talmud
    I love this podcast—it makes Talmud feel so much more accessible. My husband and I are in the process of converting, and listening to this is an easy and lovely way to learn in short snippets every day. Thank you! :)
  • hsldud
    Often judgemental
    An example is the post thanksgiving podcast where Josh cross is discussing his anger regarding people that travel - maybe he’s right maybe he’s wrong - however even the lawmakers that tell The populations not to travel-are traveling! He should just worry about him and his family doing what they feel is right.
  • kookoo sabzi
    So creative
    These few minutes not only help bring perspective to the Dad but they do so in delightfully unexpected way each day. Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable!
  • BMT18
    Great way to start the day
    Just starts my day with a little Talmud. Thank you for leading me through this 7 year journey!
  • Lisa Ann the Believer
    Wonderful insights layered with humor.
    Great for beginners and deep journeyers alike. Very accessible!
  • Managing Partner/Attorney
    Wow, giving birth to ideas
    I have not missed an episode of this Podcast. Sometimes an episode is an okay, that is interesting; sometimes, you get one that is a well I guess he needed to say something; but then you get one like today with Sarah Telushkin (sp?) that surpasses good and gives birth to ideas. Bring her back, the pace and the exciting thoughts about the other apples on Adam’s tree were provocative and fresh. This episode was Super, and flowed naturally.
