Shalom to all of our Torah Focus friends…

As all of you know that the study of the Torah Seder can be daunting and difficult at times. Therefore, I have developed a study guide template that may help with regard to mentally focusing on the materials that we are given each week.

Key elements in the weekly study is the Torah Portion itself…

The Psalm
The Ashlamatah or Ashlamatot
And the Nazarean Codicil

We also have thematic study
Character Study
And Festival study

The guide is in PDF format. Any page can be printed without printing all the pages at once. Therefore, you can pick the area of study that you are focusing on. The system is based on the Cornell study system. I prefer a right-handed Que column rather than left. I believe this helps when you go through the review of your accumulated notes. I hope you will find that a helpful study tool.

Study Guide

Shalom and Blessings
