At TCN we wish to enable the greater Jewish Community to view a variety of live Shiurim from the most highly regarded and accomplished "Magidei Shiurim" (Lecturers). While many recorded speeches are available on the Internet, our live broadcasts provide both a way of participating in timely discussions, and people from around the country can not only listen to the speech, they can also see the lecturer and feel as if they were actually participating in the Shiur and of being part of the greater audience that attends these lectures in person.
To enable people of differing backgrounds to find lessons that are appropriate for them, we have speakers that address the basics and foundations of Jewish thought, while others are of a more advanced level, Talmud and Jewish law. We are sure that you will find one that appeals to you!
We currently feature the following regularly scheduled lecturers:
Rabbi Yissocher Frand
