NCSY is proud to announce a new staff learning program, open to anyone who is interested!

Each week, there is an source sheet attached to guide your learning for the coming parsha. Each source sheet includes the following:

  • List of key Rambans on the parsha, including a brief explanation of what issue the Ramban is discussing in each one. This list is based on the acclaimed pamphlet put out by Rabbi Fried of the Dallas Kollel (DATA).
  • List of key Gur Aryehs on the parsha (the Maharal’s commentary on Rashi), including a brief explanation of what issue the Maharal is addressing in each one.  This list is based on the pamphlet assembled by Rabbi Yehoshua Hartman, who has written a commentary on nearly all of the Maharal’s works.
  • 5 Parsha Highlights, pointing out key sources, ideas, and books related to the parsha that are worth knowing and sharing with others.
  • One foundational topic in Machshava related to the parsha, with an in-depth breakdown of the key relevant sources.

If you want to sign up or have any comments, feedback or ideas for future topics to cover, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly via email at You can also find me on Twitter at: @DBashIdeas.
