Morning Shiurim Track

Every weekday, beginning at 9:10am, dynamic and knowledgeable First Seder Bais Medrash teachers offer interactive shiurim on a variety of topics, from Mishnayos, Gemara, Halacha, Mussar, Tanach, Jewish ethics, and Dirshu Mishna Berura. Shiurim are accessible via Adobe Connect for those who cannot participate in person.

Morning Gemara/ Chavrusah Track

Every weekday morning, we have an in-depth Gemara track, where you can learn, analyze, and review Gemara in Chavrusah style. Or, get paired up with a chavrusah and decide to learn the topic of your choice.

Daf Hashavua

First Seder offers a comprehensive, enriching Daf Hashavua shiur as a part of an international undertaking to learn one Daf every week. The method of learning is designed to allow you the time to learn each Daf with clarity, depth, and enough review to feel a real ownership of the Daf.

Kli Yakar Chaburah

Want to learn something on Parshas HaShavua? First Seder also has a Kli Yakar Chaburah every Shabbos, that explains the intricacy and wisdom that connects the pesukim of the Parsha.
