The Rebbe’s Call to Learn Halacha
… Various questions in Halachah often arise in the home and one cannot run to the Rav every five minutes, hence, there must be a Rav in the home. Therefore it must be encouraged that it is highly proper for everyone who wishes to build an everlasting home (and so too married men after their wedding) should first obtain Semicha. Certainly, everyone is capable of receiving Semicha—at least the way it is done nowadays. (24 Teves 5712)
Designed by an in-house team of scholars, our syllabus is all in English, from the primary texts of Shulchan Aruch and commentaries to our exclusive summaries and visualizations. The curriculum is structured to appeal to learners of all kinds. Whether you are a visual, auditory or logic learner, you will leave with a firm grasp of the material.
