|For your convenience, our lectures are available as either individually downloadable files or as sets consisting of entire lecture series on CD-ROM (cassette tape is no longer available.) The downloadable files are provided as ZIP archives, each of which contains an MP3 audio file and an accompanying lecture note file in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. Please note that due to the length of the lectures, our ZIP archives average 40 Mb each and therefore dowloading lectures is recommended primarily for broadband users (e.g., DSL and Cable).
The lecture notes are an invaluable resource, and you can either print or view them on your computer as you listen to the lecture or afterwards, as a review. These professionally formatted PDF files consist of from 2-30 pages of source material - both in the original Hebrew or Aramaic and translated into English - so the listener can see exactly from where the material in the lecture came.
History lectures are approximately 90 minutes in length and typically have 15-30 pages of source material; lectures on Jewish thought are about 70 minutes in length with 2-10 pages of material.
Lecture series sets on CD-ROM are in MP3 format so if you intend to listen to the lectures in your car or on a home stereo, please ensure that your CD player supports MP3. (You may, of course, transfer the MP3 lectures to an Ipod or other media player.) CD-ROM sets also include a separate CD with all lecture notes for that series in PDF format.
You may also purchase a CD set with printed lecture notes.
Regardless of what kind of set that you purchase, shipping is free on all orders!
