"I live in Pittsburgh, PA, and have a regular day job. Most of my learning is done on the bus or while walking. You have great resources to help keep me learning and participating in things. I have enjoyed the Mishnayos printouts for 9 Kislev and 13 Tishrei."

Michoel Dovid Leopold

"I have been to other communities and I can't express enough how fortunate we are to have an organization like Yagdil Torah where you can walk down the street and see, 'Oh, a shiur on this, another shiur on this,' always learning and you never have to worry."

Menachem Mendel Simon

"Here more than any other place in Crown Heights have I been able to really 'chap' more of the Torah and the Rebbe's Sichos and more of the inspiration that Chassidus has to offer."

Ari Pfeffer

“I heard about Yagdil Torah’s 20 hour open-door policy and decided I had to check it out for myself. I went there at about 12:45 AM and was amazed to find people learning. I sat down and before I knew it, an hour had passed as if it was only 5 minutes… The undisturbed, quiet atmosphere made it a pleasure.

I got hooked.

I guess my newfound pleasure was noticed by my friends and neighbors – they joined too. The secret is out: If anyone wants to learn in a quiet, heimishe place, this is it.”

Shlomo Ezagui

“To have a comfortable place in the Shechunah where everyone can sit and learn is great enough, but to have so many shiurim available on a regular basis, finding chavrusas, encouraging people - especially through your wonderful newsletter -on top of that? Incredible.

But what is most amazing for me is that all the shiurim are available for me to enjoy in Miami Beach! I’m a regular listener to your shiurim on Chassidus, Nigleh, and Halachoh L'Maaseh.

Keep up the amazing work, and have tremendous hatzlochah!”

Shmuel Mendelsohn - Mashpia of Yeshivah Torah Ohr in North Miami Beach

"One of the Yagdil Torah tactics I admire is the exposure of existing Torah learning as a means of inspiring others."

Rabbi Yoseph Paltiel - Mashpia United Lubavitcher Yeshivah, Chovevei Torah

"Yagdil Torah is breathing vital life into our community. The efforts of the organization are not only important, but crucial for our very existence.

So thank you Levi and the Yagdil Torah team, for bringing us life!"

Rabbi Yossi Pels - Co-Director Chayeinu Publications

"The study of Torah each day is critical for every member of our community. It will broaden our horizons, make us happier, healthier, more wholesome people, better humans, husbands and fathers. It will challenge us to grow and live our lives to the fullest. Yagdil Torah-the way to go!"

Rabbi Yoseph Jacobson - Dean TheYeshivah.net

A Take of two Halacha Lectures
Chof Tes Sivan, 5777

In a span of one week Yagdil Torah hosted two lectures by Rabbi Greenfield of Vaad Mishmeres Stam and Dayan Levi Raskin of London. The organization that has enhanced the community's Torah learning has brought these two giants in their respective fields in the past with glowing praise.

Rabbi Greenfield spoke about what a stam user needs to know. He spoke about issues plaguing the stam market. From what is not mehudar to products that are not usable. He let the crowd know that there are sifrei torah on the market that were written in Lithuania by non-believers, rendering them un-usable. Rabbi Greenfield gave some tips to be able to spot such Torahs.

He also brought up the need of a lamed being shaped a certain way as a source of chesed in the home. He mentioned that when buying from a sofer we should know that, as the pri megadim says, a sofer needs more yiras shomayim than a shochet.

Besides the tips about buying stam Rabbi Greenfield brought up a few halachos pertaining to checking stam. For example, exactly what kind of kid can be used to kasher a shala in stam.

Just a few days later Dayan Raskin spoke about the Halachos of Tefillah. He has written extensively on the subject in his book Siddur Admur Hazaken, and gave some of that knowledge to the participants.

He spoke about practical stuff. If a chazzan should say kedusha with the congregation or not. When 'kohanim' should not be announced by birchas kohanim. When to step back before chazaras hashatz. Just to name a few.

These courses are of the many arranged by Yagdil Torah with the goal of providing quality, interesting and practical Torah learning opportunities to all segments of our community.

Thanks to Empire Shtiebel for hosting these two lectures.
