New Semicha Program Opens Second Class

After rapidly maxing out student capacity, Machon Limud Halacha – Lemaan Yilmedu was forced to turn away many applicants. Now it is pleased to announce the opening of a second class.

Less than two months ago, the first class of Machon Limud Halacha – Lemaan Yilmedu was opened in Crown Heights. Witnessing a tremendously positive response, the program is opening a second class to accommodate more participants.

Program Director, Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm opened the semicha program to enable working people and those with busy schedules to study and receive semicha l’rabbanus in a program tailored to their needs.

Machon Limud Halacha has been able to do so without compromising on quantity or quality in the learning. Towards that goal the shiurim take place in the evening and along with the Shulchan Aruch translated into English, students are given incredible learning aids such as summaries and chart visuals to simplify the subject matter. Shiurim are recorded to offer those who miss a shiur the ability to view the shiur later.

The first class that opened in Elul was filled within days and many applicants were unfortunately turned away. Now the program is able to open an entirely new class to accommodate those it could not. 

“The demand for the program has grown beyond our wildest imagination,” Rabbi Wilhelm told “Never did we expect there to be such a need and desire to learn semicha in such a format.”

The new class will begin on Sunday, 7 Cheshvan, October 25 and will routinely take place on Sunday evenings for about a year.

Only a few spaces remain. Visit for program details and to join.
