Does Having Torah classes run in the background or while multi-tasking count as limmud Torah where a bracha would be required to be recited if you are not totally focused on the shiur but catch various ideas intermittently?

    Hi Yossi. Why would you suspect a blessing is not required here? You are learning Torah, even if you aren't learning so much. Please edit to clarify. – Double AA Jan 31 '17 at 19:37
  • I guess the question is whether that is considered learning - is that qualitatively considered learning which would allow the using of Hashems name - or is it having something run in the background as opposed to listening to music for example. – Yossi Jan 31 '17 at 19:43

    Why would this not be considered learning since you are by definition of the word learning some things – Double AA Jan 31 '17 at 19:44
  • @DoubleAA Or are you? judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/12299/… – Shmuel Brin Jan 31 '17 at 21:14
  • @ShmuelBrin If this question is asking if you can fulfill the mitzva of torah learning wihtout speaking, then that's a dupe. – Double AA Jan 31 '17 at 21:15
