Almost 9 years ago, Rabbi Tzvi Pittinsky created a 'How to Learn Gemara' webpage as a culminating class project for a 9th grade Talmud class at The Frisch School. Over the years, he has received tremendous feedback about this site from manyJewish educators who used it. After the GeoCities webhosting platform folded, the project site became inaccessible. Now that a group of old Geocities members setup geocities.ws and archived the site, it is now available again for the benefit of educators and students.
