Since RB Thieme has been mentioned here in this board, I ought to make a topic of how you can obtain the material. This topic is not meant to 'sell' anything he says. Whether you should listen to this person or anyone, is a matter between God and you, or (if you don't believe in God), you and you.
Thieme's material is copyrighted, and his son changed the terms; so now, it can only be given away, else must be ordered from https://www.rbthieme.org
. They don't charge money, don't ask for money, don't put you on a mailing list; and if I recall properly, they limit the number of lessons you can order, per month. You can use the above link to find out the current limits and terms, if any. You cannot listen to the classes online, which is a pity.. but that's their policy.
There are pdfs you can download, to help you decide what, if anything, to order. But you must order at that above link, and must call or write your order in. You cannot download the classes, that's part of the copyright. Which means, no one (like me, for example), can upload the classes even without edit or charge. So the pdfs are:https://www.rbthieme.org/PDF/LessonList ... eb2014.pdfhttps://www.rbthieme.org/PDF/Illustrations.pdfhttps://www.rbthieme.org/PDF/DVD_Catalogue.pdf
Part of the reason for this strident 'protection', is due to people misusing Thieme's material over the previous decades, to get money from people listening to him, or to misquote him. In particular, the King James Onlyists like Peter Ruckman and his minions, are fixated on Thieme. I didn't know that until going to Youtube, and then being pursued by edwardpf123, starting in what's now labelled 9/72 KJVOB video, which was actually the first one done. Sadly, edwardpf123 lied and pretended he was a Thieme student in Houston during 1981-1985; as it turned out, his pretense happened to be made during the very years I was personally attending in Houston. That's why I had to make the KJVOB series: to learn why the fixation and prove that KJVO is totally anti-Biblical (and anti-semitic, which is its core goal, to diss the Hebrew and Greek of original Scripture, so to diss the Jewish origin of it all).
Many others abused his material too, as Thieme briefly had his own 15 minutes of fame (i.e., with Time Magazine writing an article on him in the 1980's, and other like stuff prior). So there were (and still are) many groupies and folks who want to demonise him -- all because he was briefly 'famous'.
So you can understand why Berachah would want to keep 'pure', the Thieme classes. So people can see for themselves, what was and wasn't said, straight from the horse's mouth. So although personally I don't agree with Berachah's year 2003 et seq. policy to restrict the availability of Thieme's materials, I understand it.
But you can get whatever you want from them, free without money begging letters or being put on someone's mailing list.
