The maggid shiur, Rabbi Tuvia Kasimov, moreh tzedek in the Beis Horaah in Crown Heights, spoke briefly about the importance of learning from the Shulchan Aruch and not sufficing with books of summaries etc. He then went straight to a deep shiur on the topic of harchakos, starting with the Tur and Beis Yosef, The Shulchan Aruch, and then practical questions that were posed to him and that appear in the works of Acharonim.
The hanhala of the Machon says that considering the success with the first class, and following requests from shluchim who were not accepted to the class due to lack of space, registration for a second class is underway.
