With the twelfth Siyum HaShas behind us, I was wondering what is the best way for a person to maintain their Daf Yomi schedule on Shabbos, Yom Tov, and Sundays. Is it best to learn at a different time on these days, or perhaps do a double Shiur on Sundays? I am looking for ideas that have worked for others.

  • Is there something about the mentioned days that makes it difficult to maintain the daf yomi schedule on them?

  • If you are learning 6AM or 10PM on a weekday then those times will usually not work on a Shabbos, Yom Tov, or Sunday. Commented Aug 2, 2012 at 20:02
  • @GershonGold, if you learn on your lunch break at the office, I can see why that might pose a challenge, but why should 6am or 10pm be a problem?

  • Perhaps you should clarify that the question is dealing with a USA schedule (unless you want to broaden it).

    If one listens to a recorded shiur, for example...

My local (USA) Young Israel synagogue has daf yomi classes Sunday mornings after shacharis, Monday through Thursday evenings, and Shabas afternoons before mincha. (That's six days of the week; I guess they cram seven days' worth into six days as best they can.)

In an Agudath Israel synagogue I used to pray in (in the USA also), daf yomi was before shacharis every day of the week, and, since they tended to cover less than a daf a day, also sometimes after shacharis on Sundays.

    This seems to answer the question as asked. I'm not sure whether the question as asked is what the asker intended....

Our Shul has two times: Sunday through Friday mornings at 6:00 and Sunday through Thursday nights at 8:45. The Friday night shiur is given Shabbos morning before Shacharis, and Shabbos afternoon's shiur is both groups combined. Basically Shabbos day you could have a shiur before or after any davening, or, if you specifically need electronic resources, just do it after Shabbos.
