About the Course

Whether you want to learn Shechita to become a professional, career Shochet or you live in Shlichus in a remote part of the world and need to supply your family and community with fresh, kosher meat, this course is for you.

The theory and practice of Shechita has always been difficult to master in an organized fashion. With our course, gone are the days of cornering the local Shochet in Shul and begging him to take you on as his student.

Now you’ll learn all the relevant halachos and practical techniques under one teacher, with a clear roadmap to success.

After becoming proficient in the theory of Shechita, you will spend hours in the slaughterhouse with your teacher who will patiently teach you the method and best practices of Shechita.

He will guide you all the way through until you receive Hodaah and Kabbalah from Rabbi Raphael Dovid Banon, veteran Shochet and member of the Montreal Beis Din.

Course Curriculum

The Shechita course - as with all of the Lemaan Yilmedu courses - consists of a balanced curriculum containing live lectures, independent learning and hands-on training.

The independent learning will be guided by a translated and elucidated version of the Simla Chadasha - the Sefer containing all of the halachos of Shechita - as well as insights and directives given by the Chabad Rebbeim throughout the generations. This special edition was produced exclusively for Lemaan Yilmedu’s Shechita Course. The publication is replete with translations and visual aids to ensure that every single detail of the complex halachos is crystal clear.
