On Jan. 5, 2020, the Israel-based Hadran organization hosted the first international Women’s “Daf Yomi – Siyum ha-Shas” ceremony in Jerusalem, marking completion of the entire Babylonian Talmud during the course of the prior seven years of daily learning. Since then, a growing and diverse group of women across the globe have begun attending daily daf yomi classes. In his lecture, Adam Ferziger will analyze this novel initiative through the prisms of the history of the worldwide daf yomi study, which began in 1924, grew dramatically from the late 20th century and remains a predominantly male activity, and the history of Orthodox feminism, focusing on its transnational characteristics that have become more apparent since the pandemic.

Adam S. Ferziger is professor in the Department of Jewish History and Contemporary Jewry at Bar-Ilan University, Israel, and holds the Rabbi S.R. Hirsch Chair for Research on the Torah and Derekh Erez Movement. He is a senior associate at the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, University of Oxford, and co-convener of the Oxford Summer Institute on Modern and Contemporary Judaism. His research focuses on the history of religious responses to modern and contemporary life in Western Europe, the United States and Israel as reflected, among others, in denominational and ideological divides, Jewish law, leadership and gender.
