Why do I need to learn gemara? How many times have we asked ourselves this question?

We may enjoy it and be successful at it, but in an honest moment we can’t help but wonder what these seemingly unorganized and ambiguous details are really all about — and why its study is so central to Judaism.

This book will address these issues, as well as answer many other questions, including:
  • How does learning Gemara create a close relationship with Hashem?
  • What value is there in learning a gemara that doesn’t lead to immediate practical application?
  • How are we to understand the Sages’ interpretations that seemingly contradict the actual words of the Written Torah?
  • Why did Hashem give the Sages the power to decide what the halachah is in His Divine Torah?
Why Do I Need to Learn Gemara? will invigorate your enthusiasm for Gemara study, and open the way towards greater connection with Hashem. Read it, and finally understand what learning Gemara is all about!

    clarifies what many people don't know, the Why.
    So many people learn gemara, but they don't realize why they are, which could lead to its abandonment, or worse, misusing it. Highly recommended

    What I got out of this book was way more than I expected! The author really relates to one who has trouble with learning Gemara and brings in all the reasonings and deeper understandings of the importance of learning Gemara. I've quickly seen a tremendous growth in both motivation and skill in my learning. Much needed for our generation. Thanks you so much! Phenomenal!

  • Great book

    I read this book on a work trip to Nicaragua and it helped me to understand why I learn Gemara and what I want my thousands of students to gain from Gemara when I teach them.

    There is nothing like this on the market. The author really shows us G-d on a daf of Gemara! Highly recommended for Modern Orthodox teens who are not too interested in Gemara.

  • I wish I had this book when I was younger. Would have made a big difference in my life but better late than never.

    When I was young, I did not have any idea what Gemara was or why I needed to learn it. No one in yeshiva ever bothered to explain its purpose and I am all the poorer for it. T-G someone realized the problem and took it upon themselves to help all the struggling boys out there who need this knowledge.
    Kol Hakovod to him!

  • Amazing Sefer

    Read the sefer whilst studying in yeshiva (before publication!) and it was amazing. truly well written, and explained from a Rebbe who went on his own journey, and can be applied to everyone!

  • Excellent Topic

    Wow! I can't believe there is a sefer like this! I'm looking forward to buying it for my son and learning it with him before he starts Gemara in Yeshiva next year!
