Ten Minutes of Torah

Each weekday, more than 20,000 subscribers receive an email that brings the Jewish world to them. From Torah commentaries written by scholars to recipes for baking challah, Ten Minutes of Torah explores the great variety of Jewish life.

Over the years, subscribers have studied the history of Jews in America, Mishnah, Jewish Ethics, and Hebrew. They’ve been inspired to delve more deeply into the weekly portion and prayer (t’filah). And they’ve renewed their connection with Israel by hearing from experts on the front line.
