A practical daf-yomi tool that explains and elaborates on one or two topics from each daf. Al Hadaf is a widely used 24-page English-language Daf Yomi journal sent out once a month (in advance of the upcoming dafim), via regular mail or e-mail, for a small annual subscription fee. Since each dvar Torah is self-contained and includes all the necessary background information, it is an excellent study aid even for those with a more limited Gemara background. It also serves as a wonderful, short, daily daf-related study program for those who are unable to learn the entire daf. And because it includes annotations and extensive Hebrew footnotes, Al Hadaf is appealing to rabbonim and is used by many maggidei shiur. For more information or for a free sample, visit their website www.alhadafyomi.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact their office: Al Hadaf, P.O. Box 791, Monsey, NY 10952, ph. 845.356.9114.
