Torah In South Africa

I have just finished a wonderful ten days in South Africa where I was brought out by Limmud SA and The Academy of Jewish Thought and Learning. I saw three cities, the bush, learned about SA politics and the Jewish community, bonded with a fantastic team of international presenters, was hosted by the most gracious of hosts and met hundreds of people. It was an honour to learn with so many and I present here all of the classes for which I have recordings. The vast majority of the links lead to audio and source sheets and a few lead to articles. Thank you to everyone who made our time so special.
