The following are short overviews of each of our free D.A.F. lists:
* Daf-Insights: concise essays on choice subjects of each Daf, ranging from clarifications of difficult parts of the Gemara to in-depth Halachic and Aggadic analyses, based on the early and later commentators. Learning aids, such as charts and graphics, are also provided. The Kollel tries to touch upon most of the commonly asked questions on the Gemara and Rashi. At the beginning of most Masechtos, we present a synopsis of the commentators that are commonly referred to on that Maseches.
* Daf-Background: translations, definitions, and brief explanations for concepts that are discussed in the Gemara, as well as textual, historical, and geographical notes.
* Daf-Points: a point by point, concise outline of the flow of each page of Gemara.
* Daf-Discuss: Dafyomi learners send in their questions on the Daf, and the members of the Kollel research them and write answers, leading to interactive discussions. (It is not necessary to subscribe to this list in order to send in your questions.)
* Daf-Review: a comprehensive review of the Daf, in question and answer format. (Answers are mailed separately from the questions, and provide for quick review of the Daf.)
* Daf-Hebcharts: charts in Hebrew (in .pdf format) which visually summarize all of the discussions of the Gemara, Rashi, and Tosfos.
* Daf-HebrewReview: includes "Galei Masechta" and "Yosef Da'as" (in .pdf format). "Galei Masechta" is a concise summary of the Daf in Hebrew, including the main points of Rashi and Tosfos. "Yosef Da'as" presents insights, references, comprehensive Halachic summaries and conclusions of the Poskim. It includes a question & answer review.
* Daf-MishnahReview: Review questions on Mishnayos, keeping with the Mishnah Yomis calendar, with a full set of detailed answers (in a separate mailing) for quick review (or preparation) of the Mishnah.
* Daf-Quiz: multiple choice quizzes for every Daf, scored as you fill in the answers.
