    Which maggidei shiur give clear, slowly-spoken iyun shiurim?

    I am looking for a iyun shiur where the mefarshim are explained thoroughly and where the magid shiur speaks intelligibly and clearly, where terms are explained.

    R’ Nissan Kaplan is brilliant in his lomdus, but I sometimes struggle to understand the hodgepodge of Yiddish, English, and Hebrew he uses.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I find Rav Shlomo Singer to be great, Shas Illuminated to be great, Rav Yaakov Neuberger at YU to be clear, and Rav Shalom Rosner to be great. Rav Yissocher Frand is also easy to understand.


    Rav Yisroel Reisman seems to be very clear, and easy to understand.

    Can anyone suggest a Daf Yomi in Brooklyn that meets these criteria, clear English easy to understand?


    Is there a place online to get shas b’iyun shiurim?


    Try not every daf will be there but there is a large variety of shiurim there. They have some iyun shiurium too.


    I saw an ad in the Hamodia in August advertising a kollel in Flatbush that learns the daf yomi b’iyun every day.

    I want a shiur where they just don’t go through the daf and translate. I am capable of learning the daf and Rashi on my own; I want a shiur that goes through Tosfos and important Rishonim and Acharonim.

    YUTorah has all kinds of audio shiurim.


    YUTorah has many daily iyun shiurim on their website. R’ Schachter, R’ Sobolofsky,R’ Simon, R’ Willig, and R’ Rosensweig are some of the Roshei Yeshiva that try and put every single one of their iyun shiurim on the website daily. This year they’re doing Bava Metziah and the past few years they did Yevamos, Pesachim, Bava Basra, Gittin, and Berachos.


    I’ve also listened to R’ Yosef Meir Kantor at Torah Tapes.

    He’s made hundreds of iyun shiurim on all the major yeshiva masechtos, except Bava Basra, Sanhedrin, and Avodah Zarah (Although he’s done Makkos, IIRC).

    He goes through all the major rishonim inside and gives he’aros from the acharonim.


    R’ Simon is nice and slow, easy to understand. R’ Sobolofsky requires one to listen carefully, as he is more energetic in his delivery. R’ Rosensweig is Brisk like none other, and his shul iyun shiur is good preparation for listening to his shiurim given within the yeshiva.


    There is something called Halacha on the daf. It is a 5-10 minute shiur that discusses one topic that is related to the daf. I found it very enjoyable. You listen to it by calling 951-262-2566. I am curios if any one else heard it(I just found out about it) and if you did what do you think about.
