Fulfill Your Dream:
Get Your Smicha Within A Year

How many times did you come across a halacha question in your home, when you told yourself: “It’s time to learn the halachos and know the answers”?

We all know the Rebbe’s instruction that chassidim receive smicha before their chasuna; and that whoever did not manage to complete it before their chasuna, should do so afterward. However, despite our desire, it seems like an impossible task. Without proper guidance, without a program that has a beginning and end, the chances of succeeding are slim. In addition, the ability to discern the proper halachic ruling and apply it to practical cases requires proper instruction.

It is for this purpose that the “Machon Limud Halacha — Lema’an Yilmedu” program was created — so that anyone who wishes to learn the relevant halachos and receive smicha to answer questions in their own home, should be able to do so — with an organized program, weekly classes, tests to help with review and retaining information, study booklets with summaries in English, and a dedicated teacher ready to answer every question.
