Past topics have included:
Participate in Torah Bytes webinars by computer or phone. Each webinar is open to all USYers and no registration is necessary.
Though we encourage you to join every webinar, each Torah Bytes session focuses on a self-contained topic and discussion, so participating occasionally won’t impact your understanding.
To participate, follow us on Facebook, where event log in instructions and topic information will be posted one week in advance of the session.
Torah Bytes webinars take place from March through June and from September through December.
