Hadran aims to inspire women to learn Talmud.
Founded in 2018 by a group of women who study Talmud together, Hadran aims to make Talmud study accessible to Jewish women at all levels. It does so in a unique way: by providing a wide range of resources – daily Talmud study support, commentary, topical shiurim, insights – in the voice of women teachers.
These resources present the material in clear ways, with explorations of context and explanations of basic Talmudic assumptions, making them interesting, engaging, and meaningful. Hadran believes that an accessible digital hub of Talmud study will advance women’s Talmud learning worldwide. There are podcasts and recordings of the Daf every day, as well as options to join face to face or online learning sessions around the globe.
Hadran’s goal is to change the paradigm, offering women at all levels of knowledge the tools they need to study Talmud, at their own pace and whatever way suits them – whether in a class, as part of a chavruta, or on their own. In addition, by providing support in the voice of female teachers, Hadran hopes to provide role models that advance the status of women in the world of Talmud.
Hadran was started by Rabbanit Michelle Cohen Farber – Co-Founder and Shoshana Baker – Co-Founder.
