Do you wish you could check your own mezuzos? Are you a shliach in a small town wishing you could check your meukravim’s mezuzos on site instead of shipping them away? Do you want to be an educated consumer when buying STAM?

The Havineni Institute is launching a new Safrus course in English, enabling Anash across the spectrum to learn and understand these important Halachos and their practical applications.

In order to give participants a complete and comprehensive experience, they partnered with Lishkas Hakodesh, an organization that specializes in offering high-quality Stam courses. Lishkas Hakodesh is known worldwide as being the best of its kind, with a reputation of producing sofrim and magihim who are knowledgeable and proficient.

While the course is structured primarily around the Mishnah Berurah, all of the Alter Rebbe’s psakim are integrated into the curriculum. In addition, it includes an overview of all the opinions of the modern-day halachic authorities regarding practical halacha.

Every area of practical halacha is covered; by the end of the course, participants will be able to answer any question regarding Hilchos Stam as they are currently applied. In addition, students will analyze pictures of the letters as they study the halachos.

“If I can check the mezuzas coming to the Chabad house myself, I can provide faster and more efficient service to the Jews in my city,” said one shliach who signed up for the course. “This will significantly increase Mivtza Mezuzah.”

The safrus course in English begins on Tuesday, 23 Shevat. The first shiur can be viewed free of charge.

A two-day shimush sesion will be held in Crown Heights right after the Kinus Hashluchim 5781.

Shluchim will receive a 10% off of registration fees.


The Havineni Institute was founded with the support and encouragement of the Beis Din Rabbonei Chabad in Eretz Yisroel. Its purpose is to make the study of halacha easily accessible to Anash, at all levels of learning. The online learning platform offers a unique way to learn halacha from the comfort of home. The material covered in each course is accessible and practical so that the halachos can be applied to real-life situations as they are learned.

Since its founding, the Institute has had courses in Hebrew on Chuppah and Kiddushin, Shabbos, Taharas Hamishpacha, Mikvaos, Teffilah, Brachos, and Smicha (Issur V’heter). Instructors include leading Rosh Kollels and rabbonim whose broad knowledge and skilled teaching greatly benefit the students.
