Where To Start?
The task of writing a shiur can be a daunting one. How to navigate a seemingly infinte amount of Torah, modern and ancient and how on earth to morph it into something which is both coherent and interesting to your chanichim!
Do not fear as this page will walk you through how to prepare a world class shiur in no time at all!
1. Choose A Topic
Let’s narrow down what you want to speak about:
Is your starting point an interesting source, is it a Jewish theme or concept or is it a question that is likely bothering your chanichim?
Then ask yourself: does your topic fit neatly into a category like Tanach or Gemara or does it cross over many different areas such as a purim shiur which touches on halacha and philosophy?
2. Develop the Idea
Now think about your chosen topic and what is interesting about it, what themes and messages excite you and what you want to deliver to the chanichim.
