Amud Yomi L’anash, the popular Lubavitch Gemara program which studies 5 amudim of Shas per week, will begin learning Mesechta Brachos on the first day of Rosh Hashanah.
Amud Yomi L’anash (AYL) is an organization that promotes and facilitates the study of an Amud of Gemara each day.
It was established in Tammuz 5780 by a group of London Chasidim and encouraged by Anash Rabbonim in London – Dayan Levi Yitzchak Raskin and Rabbi Gedalya Lieberman – and by Rabanim and Mashpiim worldwide.
The program systematically studies Shas one Amud a day from Sunday to Thursday, with Friday and Shabbos reserved for review.
Why Amud Yomi?
Besides for one Amud being a feasible amount of Gemara that most people can cover each day, it was an explicit instruction of the Frierdiker Rebbe to learn an Amud daily.
During the fabrengens of Simchas Torah and Yud Tes Kislev 5683 (1923), the Frierdiker Rebbe asked Chassidim to study an Amud of Gemara each day, and to make up whatever they missed. This practice was recorded in Sefer Haminhogim by our Rebbe stating that “it was customary amongst Chassidim to study an Amud of Gemara each day.”
