Michael Grant's Jewish learning notes

I mentioned to various people at Limmud Conference that I'd be blogging my notes on the talks I've attended, and some people took down the URL of my blog. However, it could be months before any particular set of notes appears. If there's one talk in particular I attended you'd like to see, please comment on this post and I'll let you know when the notes appear.

Key:

o Supercool—you have to read this!
o Interesting.
o You might not find this interesting unless you're into Jewish learning. Or maybe you will, and your taste just differs from mine.
