When Avi Strausberg (Year ’10-’11) studied at Pardes, she began the ‘Haiku Torah Project‘, and wrote a haiku for every parasha of the Torah. This project was then continued by Ben Barer (Fellows ’11-’12), and he continues to write weekly ‘Torah Haikus’ on his blog.

Since leaving Pardes, Avi began her rabbinical studies at Hebrew College, and now has taken upon herself a new endeavor – Daf Yomi! Avi is back to writing haikus, but now they’re daily – for every daf of Talmud that she covers… and she recently passed #100, which means that Avi has covered more than the first 100 consecutive pages of Talmud in the Daf Yomi cycle!

Wow! Mazal Tov!
