During the upcoming yeshiva year, bochurim in Chabad yeshivos across the world will be studying Maseches Shabbos. In an effort to revolutionize Gemara study in Chabad yeshivos, to follow the format outlined by the Rebbeim and include the study of the Gemara’s practical application, Rabbi Levine published a special edition of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchun Aruch with the Divrei Shalom commentary for bochurim and their maggidei shiurim.

Rabbi Levine also delivered a special shiur in English, summarizing the proper manner of learning as explained by the Alter Rebbe in Hilchos Talmud Torah and as followed in Tomchei Tmimim in Lubavitch, which involves the application of study to halacha l’maaseh.
