Weekly Freebies: Rakeffet Lectures

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I started putting together this website cataloging R. Aharon Rakeffet’s lectures. This is obviously just the tip of the iceberg, and YUTorah is the source, but users might find this an easy way to access his recent and some classic lectures: Rakeffet.Wordpress.com.

Also note that this website is presented in conjunction with the publication of R. Rakeffet’s new book, From Washington Ave. to Washington St., published by OU Press and Gefen Publishers. Learn more about the book here: link. From what I understand, it will probably not be available in the US for at least another month.

  1. Thank you very much. This is very helpful

  2. Hi Rabbi Student –

    Would you (or CJF/YU or Gefen/OU) be able to post a schedule of upcoming public appearances and scholar-in-residence-weekends for Rav Rakeffet as he does his summer USA tour? Either here or on the Rakeffet site would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Gil-

    I am the original organizer and librarian of all of R’ Rakeffet’s audio shiurim online. I have everything extensively cataloged (up until I stopped my work ~4 years ago, when YU Torah dedicated a staff to record, post and organize shiurim).

    I registered rakeffet.com years ago with the intention of being the authoritative source to all of R’ Rakeffet’s shiurim online.

    We should collaborate on this. You know how to reach me.
