Connecting To The Rebbe Every Day Through Learning Rambam

As we begin learning Rambam for the 44th time and approach 40 years since the launch of Mivtza Rambam, Vaad Or Vechom has created a resource site on Takonas HoRambam, including articles, sichos, videos, daily study guides, and more.

As Chassidim, one of the most basic ways of connecting with our Rabbeim is by following their takonos.

Less than a month after Yud Shevat 5710, the Rebbe wrote about the importance of keeping the [Frierdiker] Rebbe’s takonos, quoting a letter from the Frierdiker Rebbe (Hayom Yom 24 Sivan): “You ask how can you be bound (m’kushar) to me when I do not know you personally…The true bond is created by studying Torah. When you study my maamarim, read the sichos, and associate with those dear to me – the Chassidic community and the tmimim – in their studies and farbrengens, and you fulfill my request regarding saying Tehillim and observing Torah-study times – in this is the bond.”

It is clear from countless letters and sichos that the Rebbe saw the shiurim as a direct line of hiskashrus to the Frierdiker Rebbe. As we find ourselves after Gimmel Tammuz, it is no doubt that one of the strongest ways of connecting to the Rebbe is by fulfilling the Rebbe’s takonoh of learning Rambam, which the Rebbe referred to as his “dream” and “chavivus meyuchedes” (especially precious to him).

As we once again begin learning Rambam from the beginning for the 44th time and as we approach 40 years since the launch of Mivtza Rambam on Acharon Shel Pesach 5744, Vaad Or Vechom Hahiskashrus is pleased to share an overview of the Rebbe’s launch of Takonas Horambam, and its development over the years. Read it here.

Additionally, the Takonas HoRambam resource site, including articles, sichos, videos, daily study guides, and much more, has something for everyone of all ages to enjoy! Be sure to visit the site at It is our hope that this will help you continue, or take on, learning Rambam with a “shturem.”
