Source Sheets

People often ask me for sources on a wide range of topics and so I have decided to share here the material for a large number of the shiurim and lectures I have given in various locations over the years. I will endeavour to write up short summaries of the shiurim to accompany the source sheets to enable people to give the shiurim over themselves.
