I am wondering what systems of structured Jewish learnings exist or alternatively how to build one. In a broader way what are existing/recognized Jewish learning curriculums or answers to “what should a Jew know/learn regularly”?
We know some partial answers
- “shnei mikra v’echad targum” - weekly review of the parsha of the week with its commentary (Onkelos / Rashi) - I know some try to learn every year another commentary on a revolving basis (e.g., Ramban, Baal Haturim)
- daf yomi
- Hitat (Chabad’s Humash, Tehilim, Tanya) - discussed here on MY
- Chabad’s (and others?) daily learning of Mishne Torah (1 chapter a day / 3 chapters a day)
But am I asking in a broader way. What should a Jew know and regularly learn? The answer is probably a combination of
- Humash: weekly review of parasha and commentary (what about midrash?)
- Tanakh: yearly review of rest of Tanakh
- Oral Law: daf yomi + review all mishna every 1/2/3 years?
- Halakha: regular review of Mishna Brura (e.g., Dirshu's Daf Yomi b'Halacha, see also here)
- Mussar: e.g., review on a revolving cycle of Mesilat Yesharim, Chovot Halelavot, etc.
What existing systems are you aware of? What are thoughts on this?
PS. I read (in his wife's biography) that R Chaim Kanievski has his own seder limud, completing every year Talmud Bavli, Talmud Yerushalmi, Nach, Rambam, Shulchan Aruch, Mishnah Berurah, Midrash Rabbah, Midrash Tanchumah, Sifra, Sifri and Tosefta. But I am looking for something for us normal humans...
