Around fifty talmidim of the Machon Lemaan Yilmedu took a test last Thursday given by the posek, Rabbi Gavriel Zinner, author of Nitai Gavriel. This took place in his beis medrash in Boro Park.
The talmidim are learning semicha issur v’heter, hilchos Shabbos – halacha l’maaseh, hilchos tefilla u’brachos, and the shechita course. For those students who don’t live in New York, there was a separate Zooom test.
Rabbi Zinner was impressed by the number of talmidim and mentioned the director of the Machon in the United States, Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm a’h, saying the learning surely was a nachas ruach to his neshama.
The menahel, Rabbi Chaim Yisroel Wilhelm, gave Rabbi Zinner the new volume of Igros Kodesh in which six letters from the Rebbe to Rabbi Zinner appear, all written in 5742, which deal with halacha.
During the test, the students demonstrated their expertise in the subject matter with an emphasis on practical halacha in daily life.
Rabbi Zinner was impressed both by the number of those tested as well as the level of their knowledge and he encouraged all of them to continue learning, review the material and learn other topics in halacha.
This year-long course, will cover the areas of Halacha essential for every business person to live by. With a two-hour weekly class, the course is able to fit into your business schedule and still give you the tools you need to master many aspects of the Halochos related to business.
This year-long offering from Lemaan Yilmedu will provide you with the tools, training and certification to be a Sofer Stam. Taught by Rabbi Chaim Pape, a skilled Sofer, students will study the theory of Safrus in Keses Hasofer and the Alter Rebbe's Shulchan Aruch alongside intensive practical training.
