Unprecedented public enthusiasm for the new Punctuated Oz Vehodor Gemara

Unprecedented enthusiasm by thousands of Daf Yomi learners greeted the publishing of the fully punctuated Maseches Kiddushin by Oz Vehodor – another initiative of the gaon hatzaddik Rav Yehoshua Leifer shlit"a, av beis din of the Beer Moshe community in Monsey.

Many of those who already began studying from the new Gemara note that the text, with its nikkud and punctuation, offers tremendous benefits even to veteran learners. Studying from the fully punctuated text frees one's mind from the need to contend with the punctuation and rashei teivos, leaving it fully available to grapple with the actual content.

The punctuation organizes the content too: suddenly, one can see a sentence with a beginning and an end. This sentence, too, is comprised of segments that are neatly divided by a comma. There is a sugya, starting with a din or halachah, followed by a discussion. There is a kushya and a teirutz. The emphases organize the discussion structure, as well as the page in general. Upon concluding the study, the emphases allow one to easily acquaint himself with the content through a quick, general glance at the page.

Top experts were recruited for the Aramaic punctuation, after which the punctuated text underwent extensive review by veteran talmidei chachamim and then sent for typesetting. This stage of the process required a unique technique, due to the great complexity of graphically organizing such material, with its nikkud and tight punctuation, in order to reach the beautiful, impressive and clear outcome. All this work was masterfully directed by Rav Aharon Margaliot shlit"a.

News of the publishing of the Punctuated Gemara brought with it thousands of purchases, and the Oz Vehadar sales center team was reinforced in order to provide the thousands of callers with a quick and effective response. The new volumes can also be purchased in select sefarim stores.
