About the TSC

The Tanach Study Center is designed to provide the student with a structured learning program for self-study of Tanach. The site contains:

Ongoing Shiurim
Planned are ongoing weekly shiurim on Parshat Ha'Shavuah, Navi, and Special topics.

In order to help the development self study skills, each shiur will eventually contain five sections:

  1. Questions for preparation
  2. The shiur (a class)
  3. Related maps and blackboards (in *.gif format)
  4. Topics and Questions for Further Study.
  5. An ongoing (monitored) discussion group, based on comments by students on that specific shiur.

If you are studying a certain Parsha, Sefer, or Topic, the archive section will be helpful. Its shiurim are organized in two ways:

  1. By Sefer/Parsha
  2. By Topic
  3. By Jewish Holidays

For example:

    If you are looking for a shiur on Parshat Toldot, you would choose the "Archive by Sefer" option.
    If you are looking for a shiur on Rosh Ha'Shana, you would choose the "Archive by Jewish Holiday" option.
    If you are looking for a shiur on the Bet Ha'Mikdash, you would choose the "Archive by Topic" option.

Resource Material
The Student Center will utilize the various capabilities of the web in order to provide students with resource material to help self-study. Planned are:

Miscellaneous maps of the Land of Israel, helpful for understanding certain shiurim.
Key hebrew phrases and an annotated bibliography of the various commentators who are quoted in the shiurim.
The Virtual Blackboard
