Beginning today, Sunday, Parashas Ekev, 17 Menachem Av, you can begin your Tishrei preparations. Just 15 minutes a day and you can master the halachos of Rosh Hashonoh, Yom Kippur and Sukkos in the Alter Rebbe’s Shluchan Aruch. The hard work has already been done for you, now all you need to do is spend that short amount of time every day doing the learning.
What began as a local Heichal Menachem of Monsey project started by a yungerman just for the shul on 15 Av, 5772, and sent out to their email list a year later, has become a worldwide sensation that’s taking the world by storm! Hundreds and perhaps thousands are learning it now and are fully prepared for the halachos of the Shalosh Regolim.
Rav Gedalia Oberlander, rov of the Heichal Menachem Shul in Monsey and author of many seforim, told Anash.org that the project has taken off and gone “viral,” so to speak. Just today he received a message of thanks from a young man in Eretz Yisroel who thanked him for the initiative and informed him that he’s already started learning today!
“People are learning the halachos and asking questions in what they’re learning, Rav Oberlander continued, There’s a great sense of camaraderie, Tshuah beRov Yoetz, they find friends and acquaintances that are also learning it and there’s great koch in the Halachos,” he added.
Allocating and dividing the halachos in the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch also is done for Hilchos Pesach, except that due to the length of those halachos the Pesach division is done over three years. One year is the halachos of kashering and baking matzohs, the next year is the Halachos of the seder night and the third year is Bedikah and Bittul of chometz.
We attach the learning schedule here for your convenience. Join the learning today and you’ll see a difference this Tishrei!
