Rabbi David Fohrman.

Although most of his lectures are in segments and it takes a while to get to the "grand finale" ( but for good reason), he truly is amazing how he "brings the Torah to life".

If you've ever read "The Beast that Crouches at the Door", you'd know what I mean.

Is there a way to upload a audio lecture here? I could post one he did on Joseph and the interpreted dreams that I think is fantastic.

I really enjoy Rabbi Joel Zeff Sunday class (10 am eastern) through webex. He is teaching the basic fundamentals on studying Torah, all the dynamics involved. Next Sunday he will teach the fundamentals of Oral Laws. Its a free class, you can join Noahide Nations or not its still free, click on top where it says Naohide Education, scroll down to Academy of Shem-click on "current classes" and review which classes interest you. You dont have to be interested in being a NOahide, which is what you are until you convert really, but these are Rabbies that are educating people on Torah learning. Rabbi Zeff is well verse and has a fun class. http://ns1.noahidenations.com/index.php/noahide-education/academy-of-shem-a-eber/current-online-classes
Here is a description:
New Class -
Introduction to the Torah Bookshelf. Any serious discussion of an issue involving Torah law or philosophy will invariably make reference to a wide assortment of the classic works of “Torah literature.” What is the Chumash? Mishna? Talmud? Mishne Torah? Arba’a Turim? Shulchan Aruch,? Mishna Berurah?

Who wrote them and why? How do they interface with each other to create a conclusive view? Join us for an exciting adventure as we discuss these works, and others, and answer these questions. In addition, we will study short selections from each of these authoritative texts.

This course will be taught by Rabbi Joel Zeff and is co-sponsored by the Jewish Studies Initiative of Northern Texas. First class is on Sunday February 5th at 10 am EST in the Academy of Shem.

Here is another class sample :
COURSE TITLE: The Torah on Shem and NoachWhat does the Torah really have to say about our forefathers Noach and Shem. Shem plays a key role in the Noahide tradition, essential in bridging gaps between both camps, and ultimately sheds light onto the greatness of Noach.

These are not secrets, they are just not taught. This class will focus on the Torah and teachings to discover the true character Shem and Noach, and how they are essentially relevant in today's Noahide/Jewish world.

As we all know, Bnei Noach come from Noach, and his experiences and the standard Torah teachings. What many Noahides do not know, is the history and teachings of the original Ben Noach, Shem (Ben Noach). Shem is the integral component not only in understanding the Torah in many areas, but directly involved with Bnei Noach themselves. This is something that is a novelty, to both Jew and Noahide, which ironically should be standard knowledge for both sides!

Course Schedule: Sunday 10 P.M. Eastern Time (Israel 4 A.M.)

Course Length: On-going class

Suggested Material: Tanach
