Visionary Founder

Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm, of blessed memory, was the vision behind Lemaan Yilmedu. A man devoted to teaching Torah and Halacha, he remains the inspiration behind our activities.

Our learning is dedicated in loving memory of Rabbi Wilhelm.

About
Lemaan Yilmedu

Established in 2021, Lemaan Yilmedu was created to fill the need for high-quality, immersive Halacha instruction in English. Working with a team of Rabbonim, teachers, translators and graphic designers, we have produced the most comprehensive English-language Halacha courses to date.

Lemaan Yilmedu’s courses range from our popular Semicha course, through which hundreds have received their Semicha, to more advanced courses tackling difficult and complex topics, until now inaccessible in English. These include our Mikvaos course and Chuppa Ve’Kiddushin course, which make these crucial Halachos comprehensible and clear.

Our Shechita course is the first of its kind: a course which takes the students through the primary texts, which are all translated, to developing the necessary knife-sharpening skills and culminating in practical, hands-on training and certification.

The new Chosson Teacher course brings together voices from all the relevant fields—beyond just the Halachos—and provides the future teacher with the tools to give their students the information they need for the rest of their lives. 

Our pioneering attitude and access to the world’s foremost experts means we have created the premiere English-language Halacha institute, one unrivaled in depth and clarity.

Lemaan Yilmedu Center

Our newly-built center serves as the hub for our in-person classes and a place for students to study on their own, review the material and prepare for exams, all in an environment conducive to learning.
