  1. Thanks, this looks like a really great resource.

    I'm intimidated by Chullin, especially as I'll be travelling during the first few weeks of the massechet so I wont have the benifit of my regular shiur. I printed out you sheet to keep in the back of my gemara, hopefully it'll help.

    BTW - if you want to add another audio shiur to your list of websites, I really love Rav Matis' shiurim:
