929 Project has recordings of Tanach in which a voice actor reads the given chapter of Tanach in the original Hebrew with intonations that fit the subject matter (example).

This can be useful for many reasons, among them is that it can serve as an auditory review which does not require stationary book reading.

Are there any such [similar] recordings for the Gemara? Recordings which contain a reading of the content (presumably with some intonations) but nothing else.

The point of this would be the same, a method of review which does not require stationary book reading.

  • You mean specifically without translation? – msh210 Dec 6 at 6:32
  • Generally the Gemara is sufficiently complex that people prefer explanation with it. Here for example is a set of recordings of lectures of the entire thing with translation, explanation, and commentary; given daily over a 7-year period ("daf yomi", a page a day) in Los Angeles in the 80s-90s. dafyomi.org/download.php – Shalom Dec 6 at 9:46

This actually does exist on Kol Halashon! Seems to be as described — a man reading the Gemara in Daf format, said in ‘traditional’ Ashkenazi Gemara tone.


As a side note, the man who recorded this, Rav Yehoshua Leibowitz, has also recorded quite a few other areas of text that may be of interest:

  • Shulchan Aruch
  • Tanach
  • Rambam
  • Select Mussar Seforim
  • Ein Yaakov/Some Yerushalmi
