50 students of Lmaan Yilmedu from Crown Heights and another 200 from around the world were tested on halachos of Issur V’heter, Shabbos, Shechita and Safrus.

About fifty talmidim from Machon Lemaan Yilmedu were tested this week by Rabbi Gavriel Zinner, author of Nitei Gavriel, in his beis medrash in Boro Park.

This test was for talmidim who live in Crown Heights and the area, who are in the Semicha program – issur v’heter; Hilchos Shabbos – halacha l’maaseh, Shechita and Safrus. At the same time, a series of tests was held for about 200 talmidim who participated in the Zoom shiurim given by Rabbi Dovid Banon, rav and dayan in the Chabad community of Montreal. The test began with the menahel, Rabbi Chaim Yisroel Wilhelm thanking Rabbi Zinner for the time he has devoted to the talmidim of the machon since the opening of the mosad in the United States four years ago.

Rabbi Zinner spoke highly of the director of the machon, Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm a”h, and connected this with the previous parsha. Although Moshe Rabeinu’s name is not mentioned in it, he is present. So too, although Rabbi Wilhelm is not with us, certainly the ongoing learning and expansion of the mosad give nachas ruach to his neshama.

Rabbi Zinner tested the talmidim for an hour and a half. Along with him were the maggidei shiur, Rabbi Yossi BarberRabbi Sholom Zirkind, and Rabbi Chaim Pape. At the test’s conclusion, he urged the talmidim to continue investing in limud ha’Torah in general, and particularly the study of halacha, and reminded them of the obligation, according to Torah, to learn Torah every day.
