No less than 500 bochurim from Chabad Yeshivos across Eretz Yisroel, gathered on 15 Shevat for an advanced test on the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch.

The test came at the conclusion of a months-long study of the Alter Rebbe’s Hilchos Tefillin, as part of an annual study organized by Rabbi Avraham Alashvili, one of the editors of the new edition of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, and author of numerous seforim, and by Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim.

Rabbi Alashvili heads an organization dedicated to spreading the study of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, and has organized similar tests for the past 12 years.

All participants received two newly published seforim as a gift, and the 800 who passed received stipends of between 500 and 1,000 shekel.

  1. I hope someday someone will start a program like Dirshu Mishna Brurah,but it will be on learning the whole Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch.For everyone.With some stipand and for everyone (not only for yeshivabochrim).
    And I think other not Chabad Chassidim will join it .And not only them.And imho it should be done with a big pirsum.
    I am sure it will be a very big naches for the Rebbe!
