Rav Meir Pogrow, Sh’lita, has an ambitious goal: he wants the average layman, and not just the elite Torah scholars, to master the ENTIRE Torah – Tanach, Mishna, Gemara, and Halacha! As inconceivable as this sounds, he has already seen incredible success with hundreds of students around the world. Thousands of simanim of halacha. Thousands of Mishnayos. Hundreds of Blatt Gemara. Sound too amazing to be true? Come hear him speak Tuesday, March 8:45 PM at the East Side Torah Center.

  1. I can’t come to the East Side on Tuesday, but after looking through their website I am very interested in this. It doesn’t seem like the program is operational now, though. Is this correct?

  2. The program is operational and available online for free. The shiurim can be downloaded, as well as the calendars, and tests with answers. Currently they are finishing Gemara Shabbos (and all of Moed with it) and moving on to Seder Kodshim. The Mishna Program is nearly complete and I believe the Rambam program is as well.

  3. This sounds pretty cool. I DLed the shiur for the sugya I’m learning, and plan to listen later. The problem is, if I spend the advertised 2.25 hours per day on this program (I think I could barely make that happen), I haven’t begun to address anything else! No mussar, no Tanach, halachah, nothing. So at day’s end, it seems like this is only viable for folks who are not working FT.

  4. The P90X of learning

  5. maybe cut it in half, do half an amud a day (sounds like they have a similar concept for beginners mishnayot). it will take twice as long to finish.

  6. Having learned for a short time under Rav Meir, I can attest that his methods, if followed assiduously, pay off with tangible rewards.

  7. Where can i found the program on the net?
