Jews, Church, & Civilization III

INTRODUCTION

Daf Yomi is a daily regimen undertaken to study the entire 5,422–page Talmud Bavli, one daf (one sheet, i.e. two actual pages) per day. On that daily basis, it can be completed in seven years and five months.

The pages are complex and long.

140,000+ people worldwide (as of 2008) participate in a synchronized endeavor of daily study of the same exact Talmud page worldwide. The next official culmination of the (7–year and 5–month) study cycle is scheduled on August 2, 2012. Note that the cycle–commencement and structure were conceived and set by the organizers of the current (international) program, and not in antiquity.
