Eleven months and 339 videos later, Rabbi Yossi Lipskier thanks those who helped produce Mitzvah Minute on the entire Sefer Hamitzvos, and shares his plans going forward.
Close to a year ago, it was a dream. 339 videos and 1000 students later, it is a reality. Joining thousands of Yidden around the world, Rabbi Yossi Lipskier and all the subscribers to his daily Mitzvah Minute clips, celebrate their own Siyum of Sefer Hamitzvos.
Just before the last Rambam cycle started, Rabbi Yossi Lipskier was looking for ways to bring Sefer Hamitzvos to the balebatim in his community. All the online resources were either too advanced or demanded too much time. In today’s fast-paced world, he knew he needed something concise and simple.
That’s how Mitzvah Minute was born. Rabbi Lipskier decided he would narrow down the daily shiur to bite-size, 60 second clips, which he would send out to his community members every day.
Thinking bigger, he advertised his campaign online. Within a day, hundreds of Anash and Balebatim around the world had signed up to a daily WhatsApp broadcast. Over the coming months, hundreds more would join. Yesterday, the project was completed. Now, the entire Sefer Hamitzvos can be learned in a minute a day.
“I’m so grateful to all those who played a part in making this dream a reality,” Rabbi Lipskier shared. “A special thank you goes to Anash.org for giving me a platform in the beginning and throughout, allowing me to make this project global. To my subscribers, I say thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach you each day. Knowing that you were counting on the daily clip helped me keep the work going, day in day out. I wish you all Mazel Tov on the Siyum.”
In honor of the new cycle of Limmud Harambam, all the Mitzvah Minute videos have been collected in a YouTube playlist and can be accessed here.
Rabbi Lipskier will iy”h continue to send out the daily videos via WhatsApp throughout the coming cycle as well. To receive the actual video file daily, click here.
