These Parashat Hashavua lessons (Bereshit through Mishpatim) are based on the study sheets (gilyonot) of Nechama Leibowitz. These lessons were written by Stanley Peerless and Aryeh Strikovsky, in consultation with Yitzhak Reiner, students of Nechama's methodology. They utilize study sheets that she did not use in her famous studies (iyunim) on the weekly Torah portion.
