770’s Hanhala headed by Rosh HaYeshiva Rabbi Zalman Labkowsky has expanded their renowned Dayanus program to include the opportunity for alumni to participate, and has appointed Rabbi Ahron Liberow to direct the program and serve as its Meishiv.
In order to make it more accessible to fulfill the Rebbe’s wish that the learning of Dayanus be pursued by those who are capable and have already completed Semicha, as well as to provide the opportunity for structured learning for those who are married and no longer in a Yeshiva setting and can appreciate it most, 770’s administration has decided to expand their long-standing Dayanus program and open registration to a limited amount of alumni.
Participants will be able to learn anywhere and at any time they find convenient. Weekly Shiurim will be delivered by renowned Rosh HaYeshiva Rabbi Zalman Labkowsky, and periodical Shiurim will be given by expert Rabbonim who specialize in the fields being learned. After each subject there will be a in-person oral test by Rabbi Labkowsky.
In addition, participants will have access to newly hired Meishiv Rabbi Ahron Liberow who is designated exclusively to this program, to address their questions and help with the material being learned.
The program is known as being one of the most comprehensive and prestigious Dayanus program out there, covering most major parts of all four sections of the Shulchan Aruch, and culminating with receiving Semicha in the entire Shulchan Aruch “Yoreh Yoreh Yodin Yodin”. Unlike many other programs which cover only parts of Choshen Mishpat, 770’s Hanhala has always believed that one can’t be a Dayan or a Rov of a community without being proficient in the Halachos of Shabbos and Birkas Hanehenin, and without having a hand in the various other major parts of the Shulchan Aruch such as Mikvaos and Kidushin.
The program curriculum includes the following Halachos: Shabbos, Eiruvin, Ribis, Mikvaos, Priyah Urviah (Yuchsin and Agunos), Kidushin, Gittin, Dayanim, Eidus, Toen Venitan and Nachalos. As well as portions of various Seforim relevant to the above topics.
In addition to the above, in order to receive the certificate at the program’s end, participants must have completed the following Halachos all of them already covered in 770’s Semicha program: Krias Sefer Torah, Netilas Yodaim, Betzias Hapas, Brachos Shebiseudah, Mayim Achronim, Birkas Hamazon, Birkas Hapeiros, Seder Birkas Hanehenin, Melicha, Basar Bechalav, Taarovos, Maacholei Akum, Hechsher Keilim and Nosen Taam Lipgam.
The program officially begins on Wednesday Zayin Cheshvan, and is expected to take approximately two and a half years to complete (after regular Semicha). For questions or to register please email: [email protected]
