For the first time, an entire sefer has been authored on a single volume of Likkutei Sichos. By the recent Halikut Siyum, it was distributed to all participants.

Walk into any yeshiva, and you will find bochurim learning the Likkutei Sichos. Whether it is a vort for the Shabbos table, a dvar torah to repeat on mivtzoim, or a novel explanation on the sugya they are learning, bochurim always had a special enthusiasm for learning the Rebbe‘s Torah.
Thanks to Halikut, the past few months have seen an increased passion in yeshivos for this study. Bochurim across the USA and Canada were all studying the same sichos from Chelek Chof Hey of Likkutei Sichos, preparing for the tests and reviewing in hopes of joining the grand Halikut Siyum in New York.
With so many delving into the same sichos, there arose the need to have a proper platform to ask questions, write ha’oros and discuss the subjects being studied.
Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim, the organizers of Halikut, came up with a novel solution. Every week a booklet was published with questions, answers and discussions on the previous week’s sichos. This allowed others to answer the questions, challenge the answers and continue the dialogue, all around the same sichos.
As Halikut 5780 drew to a close, the organizers decided to collect all of the ha’oros and publish them in one sefer. The result was over 250 pages, a full book, on one volume of Likkutei Sichos. The ha’oros were reorganized by parsha and by sicha and resulting in a beautiful sefer entitled Ha’oros Hatmimim V’Anash.
Most of the sefer is ha’oros that were authored the past few months, with a select few being older ha’oros from the kovetz ha’oros of Oholei Torah or Morristown. With the publication of the sefer anyone who has a question when learning Chelek Chof Hey will now be able to check if the question is already addressed, and be able to find the answers to many of his queries.
A special thank you is given to the Ma’areches: Menachem Mendel Greenberg, Shneur Zalman Wilhelm, Menachem Mendel Slavin and Menachem Schmerling as well as to the organizers of Halikut Tzvi Alperowitz, Boruch Ceitlin and Peretz Garelik.
Halikut program is a project of Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim, led with dedication by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Altein.
