From Halachipedia The Mishna Shabbat 148b writes that one may not count the number of guests from a list on Shabbat. Abaye in the Gemara 149a explains that this is a rabbinic restriction so as not to come to read a Shtar Hedyot on Shabbat. What is a Shtar Hedyot which one may not read on Shabbat? Rashi 116b s.v. Shtar explains it to be financial ...

The Riaz (13th cent.) writes that there is no prohibition in women learning Torah or in teaching them. He does not differentiate between different categories of Torah, and implies that it is all permissible: פסקי ריא"ז מסכת סוטה פרק א - המקנא ב. אף על פי שאין האשה מצווה על תלמוד תורה כמו שנ' ולמדתם אותם את בניכם, ולא את בנותיכם, אם רצה ללמדה הרשות ...

Rashi, a central commentator explains the biblical verse from Zecharyah 8:10 which he understands to refer to someone who leaves Torah study to study anything else. The Talmud then discusses others who have no peace. This section mentions someone who chooses to leave one source of learning and jump to another (and it seems, does so still expecting the same ...

This seems to be dependent on the text of the Talmudic passage in Chagiga 10a. In conformance with the printed text of Rashi's commentary, the printed Talmud (Vilna edition) states: כיון שיוצא אדם מדבר הלכה לדבר מקרא - שוב אין לו שלום. ושמואל אמר: זה הפורש מתלמוד למשנה, ורבי יוחנן אמר: אפילו מתלמוד לתלמוד. "Rav said once a person leaves matters of ...

Pirqe'i Avot 5:22 states (my translation): בן בג בג אומר, הפך בה והפך בה, דכלא בה. Ben Bag Bag says, 'Delve in her and delve in her, for all is within her'. Rabbe'inu 'Ovadyah MiBartenura explains: הפוך בה והפוך בה - בתורה Delve in her and delve in her - In the Torah

In codifying the obligation to study Torah, Rambam never delineates any set components of Torah that a person must study (in the first chapter of Hilchot Talmud Torah, in the rest of that section, or anywhere else that I am aware of). Accordingly, we can infer that there is no obligation to learn "kol haTorah kulah". This is inference is made by Heshy ...

Rabbi Moshe Feinstein (Igros Moshe, Yoreh Deah, I think chelek alef) writes there is a chiyuv to know the entire Torah because of the passuk ve'shinantam le'vanechah, sheyiheyu divrei torah mechdadin bephichah she'im yishalchah adam al tegamgem ve'tomar lo elo emor lo miyad.

I want to learn Nach on a "Pashat Pashut" format. I don't want to read the Hebrew-English Nach, neither the "fancy" Meforshim that delve through all of the Devrei Torah on each Passuk. Sounds like the M'tzudos would be a perfect fit. This is a pair of commentaries written in the 1700s by R. David Altschuler. M'tzudas Tziyon explains difficult words and ...

The Maharal explains that the halachah is always the central point of all opinions that can be brought to bear on a subject. Therefore Torah lo bashamayim hi because the reasoning of shamayim is not relevant to determining the centrality of halachic opinion.
