Beyond Pshat is a transcription of the daily D'var Torah given by Rabbi Yosef Kalatsky, Shlita - Dean of the Yad Avraham Institute in New York City. Beyond Pshat is a powerful and thought-provoking discussion of the week's Torah Portion, intended to stimulate the reader's internalization of Torah and understanding of its depth. Beyond Pshat is read by everyone, by people with little or no background as well as advanced Yeshiva alumni.

Rabbi Kalatsky graduated from Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore, where he was a close Talmid of the late Rosh Hayeshiva Rabbi Yaakov I. Ruderman zt'l, founder of Ner Yisroel. Rabbi Kalatsky founded the Yad Avraham Institute in 1984 with two students; today, it serves a membership of nearly 5000 throughout the New York metropolitan area and beyond.

The Yad Avraham Institute is a New York-based learning center whose mission is to disseminate Torah to Jews of all backgrounds and walks of life. The only pre-requisite is a desire to learn. Over ten classes a day are offered by the Yad Avraham on a variety of subjects and texts. If you would like a schedule you may visit, where you may also listen to almost 4,000 lectures online.
