Baltimore, MD - Oct. 17, 2021 - A unique Gemora shiur is being offered to the Baltimore community by Torah Together.  Gemora Fundamentals will be presented by Rabbi Nosson Friedman starting Sunday, October 24th from 8 – 9 pm at Congregation Shomrei Emunah. 

Rabbi Friedman, a Rebbi at Mechinas Ner Israel for over 40 years, offers his expertise in teaching the skills talmidim need to build a foundation to learn independently. 

Rabbi Friedman explains the idea behind this class: “There is no greater feeling of fulfillment in learning than to be able to learn a piece of Gemora on your own in its original text. Many people are unable to do this because they never acquired the proper foundation for learning Gemora or have gaps in training and practice. I'm excited to have this opportunity to help these people gain a feeling of independence and accomplishment in their learning.”

When health scientist, Daniel Sklare, PhD, retired early from the NIH to devote himself to full-time learning, he first sought to upgrade his skills for independent study of Gemora with Rashi.  After checking out several venues, he found the best option was to engage Rabbi Nosson Friedman as his private Rebbe.  He commented, “Rabbi Friedman is a master pedagogue in developing Talmud study skills within students across a range of proficiency levels.”

The shiur is free of charge.  To register, log on to  For questions, please call Chaim Weiss at 410.358.1847.
