There is a short, 10-minute daf yomi shiur in Hebrew here : and I was wondering if there is anything comparable in English. I'm looking for a Daf Yomi shiur online that is significantly shorter than the normal 45-60 minutes.

Daf Yomi Online by Eliyahu Fink. Around 20 minutes a Daf and yet clear and concise.This can be found on iTunes for free.

Here's the: Or you can just search for it on itunes. Or here : He also has a YouTube channel, which may be useful if you have connectivity issues with his website.

Each Daf is about 20 minutes, on average, but pretty understandable. Currently covers Berachot 2 - Yoma 17.

  • He no longer does the Shi'ur. It was good while it lasted. – Seth J Oct 1 '15 at 15:53
  • I'm currently using this, but i'm having trouble with it because he often has to go back and correct his understanding of passages. – Scimonster Nov 4 '15 at 12:59

Dafyomi.org has classes by R' Dovid Grossman that are about 15-30 minutes per 'Amud, or about 30-60 minutes per Daf.

(Edited because, I discovered, not every Daf is as quick as I remembered from the first Masechta I'd done with this Shi'ur.)


The shiurim of R' Moshe Meir Weiss are very concise. Many are 15-30 minutes, though some run quite a bit longer (depending on the complexity, I guess).

10 minutes sounds like a completely unreasonable (and incomprehensible) speed. It might be useful for review purposes, but that's about it.


I know of nothing that short that covers the entire daf, and nothing that's audio. In case written sources help:

The following site does short summaries/excerpts every day (a couple hundred words, quick reads): http://dafyomi.livejournal.com/.

The Daf Yomi Advancement Forum publishes point-by-point summaries; see http://www.dafyomi.co.il/chulin/points/points.htm for the current masechta.


There is also http://daf-yomi.blogspot.com/ for audio shiurs, but I also like http://dafnotes.blogspot.com/ in case you just want to read or aren't in a place where you can listen.


Rabbi Simon Wolf does the Daf, and you can find his recordings here. He is amazing, one of my favorite teachers. However, it is not necessarily so short, since he likes to bring the opinions of many different Rishonim.


Try dailygemara.com by Rabbi Mansour. It is a short and very well explained review of the Daf.

    Nice to hear it with a Sephardic accent - but more like an hour. – Marc Sep 11 '13 at 20:53

I would recommend Rabbi Shalom Rosner's Daf Yomi. He is extremely interesting and covers the daf with rishonim in about 45 minutes.


There are shiurim called Chazarah Mp3. I don't know who the maggid shiur is, but he is pretty clear and speaks out almost all of the Rashis. His average is between 15-20 minutes a daf. The catch is that the shiurim cost, but they are only $5 a masechta.


Master Daf is an unusually clear 20 minute daf yomi shiur in english, with every word read and translated, available on all of Shas. Maggid Shiur is a R`m in Slabodka Yeshiva of Bnai Brak.....available at RabbiKosman.com


There is a review of a couple English shiurim listed here including average length, audio quality, format, etc. Some are listed as "fast".


Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld does the 5-minute Daf Yomi podcast on Podbean and possibly other apps. it is usually under 7 minutes, He talks fast and covers the important points. He also tries to draw a relevant point out at the end,
