A new online learning tool from Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future is making it a little easier for anyone committed to Torah study to stay on track. Called Koveah.org, the online tool creates personalized learning schedules with daily reminders to keep users focused. Users can choose from a range of topics in Tanach, Mishna, Gemara, Rambam and Shulchan Aruch to study, then set their starting point, pace and the days of the week on which they would like to learn.
“I saw a need for a way to keep people on track to stick with their daily learning commitments, no matter what they take on,” said Rabbi Robert Shur, director of the CJF’s YUTorah.org, who conceived the program. “While Daf Yomi is great and there are other similar worthy daily learning programs that allow one to follow along with a standardized schedule, if someone needed something different or more specific, they had to be extremely disciplined to remain committed over the long term, which is a big reason why people don’t follow through on these commitments. Koveah.org allows you to individualize your daily learning and make sure you can keep up.”
The program is completely free and the entire text for each day’s learning is included in the email reminders in both English and Hebrew. Additional features will be rolled out soon. For more information, visit koveah.org.
