Update Regarding Rambam App

April 23, 2023 6:48 PM

Our app team has been overwhelmed with inquiries regarding the Rambam app, as many new students seeking to join the new learning cycle have encountered challenges loading the app today.

Please know that our team is hard at work to solve the issue. However, the upgrade will require you to update the Rambam app on your device from your device’s app store. You can expect a new version of the app to be available on Android within a few hours and on Iphones by midday Monday – as each platform requires company review and approval, and their review times vary. We regret the inconvenience this caused.

Please note that in the interim the Chabad.org Daily Study app remains fully operational. And the daily study of Chitas and Rambam are always accessible online at Chabad.org/DailyStudy.

We look forward to serving you and klal yisrael worldwide with ever more convenient tools and paths to master the daily Rambam cycle, amid many other informative and inspiring Torah learning opportunities.

Update 7:10pm ET: Both apps are now live. Please update your apps.
Both the Apple and Android versions have been approved. You can now go to your device's play store to ensure that you have been upgraded to the latest version of the app.

Study Tractate Sotah With the New Torah-Texts

April 4, 2023 11:12 AM

On the second night of Passover, we began the Omer season, eagerly counting seven weeks until the holiday of Shavuot. During these 49 spiritually rich days, many study one page of Tractate Sotah each day. The tractate contains 49 folios (including the cover page), aligning with the 49 days of the Omer count.

Sotah is one of the most colorful and eclectic books of the Talmud, covering a range of topics, including the Priestly Blessing, the Midrashic backstory of the Exodus and mighty Samson, and, of course, the Sotah, the “suspected adulteress.”

And now, with Chabad.org’s Torah Texts platform, you can take your Sotah study experience to new heights.

Torah Texts makes available a wealth of major Jewish works, including classic texts with their accompanying commentaries, halachic treatises and Chassidic discourses—with more being added all the time! It also integrates Chabad.org’s vast trove of video and audio classes, offering a “guided learning” experience, where users can listen to or watch world-class lectures alongside the text.

When studying Sotah this year, you can study the text on your own in the language of your choice (English and/or Hebrew/Aramaic, along with the classic commentaries, Rashi and Tosafot, for seasoned students) or you can follow a class by master Talmud teacher, Rabbi Avraham M. Zajac.

The translation and commentary is from the acclaimed Koren Talmud Bavli (with much appreciation to the Steinsaltz Center), and we are so excited to share it with you!

While the Torah Texts platform is exciting and new, it’s par for the course for our team, which has led the effort to upload Jewish texts and the Torah’s wisdom to the world wide web and help to foster a deeper connection to Judaism’s rituals and faith since 1988. Registered in 1993, with the dawn of the Internet, Chabad.org continued this legacy as one of the first 500 websites ever created and the first website dedicated to Jewish life and practice.

With the introduction of the Torah Texts platform by Chabad.org, the vision remains the same, but the horizon of what’s possible keeps expanding. By continuing its strong tradition in retooling decades of online Torah in a format that focuses on accessibility and user-friendliness, Chabad.org utilizes technology to empower Jews worldwide with knowledge of their 3,300-year-old tradition.
