A shiur is a Jewish lesson on a variety of Torah topics, and shiurim are some of the most common methods
of teaching students about the Talmud and Jewish Bible. In addition to informal study sessions, a shiur is taught in yeshivas and other organized schools of Jewish learning. Many shiurim are taught at daily lessons by a trained speaker, who encourages the students to plan ahead for the lesson and review their notes. After the lesson is complete, the instructor also encourages students to review the lesson itself to clarify its meaning.
Many synagogue rabbis offer their services in public shiurim sessions, where they engage the congregation in a lesson that relates to upcoming holidays or other topics of Jewish life and philosophy. Many modern shiurim sessions are divided according to listener experience levels, allowing shorter and easier sessions for new listeners.Learn more about Art & Literature
