More than 40 talmidim from the Crown Heights area were tested in their semicha studies.

Rabbi Gedalia Oberlander, rav of the Chabad shul and community, Heichal Menachem, in Monsey, tested the talmidim in Lemaan Yilmedu's new beis medrash on Empire Blvd. Another test will be given next week for talmidim who don't live in Crown Heights and who learn on Zoom.

For an hour and a half, Rabbi Oberland tested the talmidim who displayed broad knowledge of the material. He was impressed that men of varying ages, young and old, of varying occupations, are investing time and effort to learn halacha in an organized way and are quite knowledgeable.

Alongside Rabbi Oberlander were the maggidei shiurim, Rabbi Yossi Barber and Rabbi Sholom Zirkind, who thanked him for taking the time to come and test the talmidim. They cited the statement of Chazal, "yogaata u'matzasa taamin" and were pleased to note that the work that was invested was apparent in the results of the test.

The hanhala of the Machon says registration has opened for the new school year which will begin, G-d willing, in Elul. Those who are interested should sign up quickly since the number of students will be limited.
