"Daf Yomi" for Sefer Ha-Aggadah--a new study project

I apologize to my readers for not having thought to post this two weeks ago. I do hope that those of you who'd like to participate in this study project will be able to catch up.

The National Havurah Committee has organized a "Daf Yomi"-style two-year study of Sefer Ha-Aggadah, The Book of Legends, edited by Haim Nahman Bialik and Yehoshua Hana Ravnitzky. Read about the project, and catch up on the posts, here.

Thanks for giving your readers info about this project.

But just to clarify, it wasn't organized by the NHC. Rather, some of us in the NHC community organized it and invited others (both Havurahniks and not) to join in.

Hope you're enjoying the discussions!

Thanks for the info, and yes, I'm enjoying reading the book and the blog.

But, as long as the NHC is not the organizer, maybe *you* know who can fix this problem. Here's a copy of the e-mail I sent to the NHC:

"There's a minor problem with the formatting of a page at Sefer Ha-Bloggadah that I hope someone will be able to "repair": On the Schedule page, the headers copied below are "fixed" in one place:

Day Date Notes Part Chapter section aggadot Heb p. Eng p. Topic

I have absolutely no programming skills, so I don't know how this might work in a Google Docs spreadsheet, but I do know that, in Excel, it's possible to "freeze" the header row, so that, no matter how far down on the page a person scrolls, the header row is always visible. Could someone kindly program that type of "freeze" into the Schedule page? We'll be beyond the point at which the header row is visible by the day after Rosh Hashanah, which will make reading the schedule a tad more difficult.

Rav todot, many thanks!"

So nu, are you coming to the NYC-area bloggers picnic today? See my Thurs., Sept. 11 post, still at the top of the homepage, for info--I'm too lazy to create a link.
