Amud Yomi

Amud Yomi (Hebrew: עמוד יומי‎) "column [of the] day" or "daily page") is a daily regimen undertaken to study the Babylonian Talmud one amud each day. (Compare with Daf Yomi in which a daf consists of two amud's, one on each side of the page).


The idea for calendar-based learning of the Talmud began with Daf Yomi in 1923. Many people have found it difficult to keep up with the heavy load of two pages (or one daf) each day. In addition, the pace can be a little fast to delve too deeply into the material.[1] As such, Amud Yomi was created as a way to study the Talmud at a slower pace.


With 2,711 dafim" (plural for daf) in the Talmud, there are over 5400 amuds. (It's not exactly twice the number of dafs, as some tractates will end on the front side of the page.) Most programs schedule some days for review or catch up, typically on Saturday and/or Sunday. As such, programs will cover between five to seven amuds a week. Depending on the schedule, the entire Talmud would be completed in this fashion after 15 to 21 years.
