Does anyone have an Easy time with chazara? Any tips to share (or complaints)?
Take a Gemara with translation,it’s available in all launguages
The Gemara says that Tzurba Derabanan have a hard time with it. There is resistance because you feel like you will be held back rather than advancing. But as is the case with learning in general, once you begin and delve in it becomes enjoyable and rewarding.
The best time to review is at the verge of forgetting. This way it comes back to life. What you worked on last time to make sense out of it well flow easy the second time around. That is akin to harvesting what you sowed. If you don’t review, it is like planting but never coming back around to collect the fruits. You aren’t really internalizing when you just made sense out of it. When you relearn with clear understanding that is when you internalize it.
I wrote quite a lengthy response to the OP, which has disappeared. I don’t think I wrote anything remotely questionable.
Did one of the Mods disapprove it, or did I just not post it properly?
I do not see it anywhere.
Thank you. If I have time, maybe I’ll try write it again.
I also posted a relatively innocuous post, which was pending for a while and then disappeared. I reposted it a couple minutes later, word for word, and it went through fine. It may be a glitch.
It sometimes happens to me that a post disappears and I can’t figure out if it was deleted or a glitch. It’s rather frustrating.
Sometimes, I can figure out why it may have been deleted so I either take something out, rewrite it, or don’t repost it (depending what I think the issue was), but many times I really have no idea if it was just a glitch or on purpose. And if it was on purpose, I’m not sure why, so I don’t know how or if it makes sense to redo it.
I wish there was a way to know.
But it’s good to know that sometimes there are glitches. So maybe if I’m not sure if something was deleted, it is kidai to repost.
Right now I’m learning with someone Gemara that he has already learned. The learning for him is Chazara. You can always chazar it with someone else who has never learned it before. If it works for my chavrusa it might work for you.
