OU daily e-mail on commandments is coming


(JTA) — A daily e-mail about the 613 commandments will soon be available under a new initiative by the Orthodox Union.

Taryag, the acronym for 613, will provide a daily e-mail with a concise but insightful explanation of a Torah commandment, according to an OU news release.

Rabbi Jack Abramowitz, OU associate director of the Pepa and Rabbi Joseph Karasick Department of Synagogue Services, will author the explanations.

The daily e-mails will become available after Shavuot; enrollment is at www.ou.org/taryag.

The OU already provides daily online lessons in Nach Yomi, the biblical books of the Prophets, and Shnayim Mikra, an online Torah-study program.
