Bet Midrash Virtuali

of the Rabbinical Assembly in Israel

What is RSS ?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a simple way to let you know whenever a new Shiur has been added to the site of the Virtual Bet Midrash.

How does it work ?

You install into your computer an RSS reader. There are literally dozens (maybe hundreds) available for free. You could use the Google Reader. Another reader is RSSReader. Yet another is Sharpreader. There are many, many more available. Installation is very simple and only takes a minute or two.

Once you have installed the Reader in your computer you can subscribe to the Virtual Bet Midrash Feed by entering the following subscription link in your Reader: (If you want to be informed of new Shiurim in Hebrew you should enter the following link: You can, of course, receive both feeds if you wish.) Now, every time you open the Reader it will not only tell you when a new Shiur is available but it will also let you read it.

Alternatively, most up-to-date browsers, such as Internet Explorer and Firefox, have a built-in reader. All you have to do is to click on the RSS image in the blurb at the end of each shiur. This will enable you to subscribe to the BMV feed. You will then be able to check for updates from within your browser. (You can also click on the "Feed" image that will appear in the browser toolbar for the same procedure.)

Of course, many other sites that you visit regularly also offer an RSS service and all the links can be entered into the same Reader, so that you get all your updates in one place without the need to visit several sites to see whether they have been updated.
