What is this program all about?
ובדורות הללו שאין החכם שונה לתלמידיו הלכות (לפי שהכל כתוב בספר) מצוה על כל אחד ואחד שילמוד הלכות הרגל קודם הרגל עד שיהיה בקי בהם וידע המעשה אשר יעשה
שו"ע הרב סימן תכ"ט
In the times of the Beis Hamikdosh, the early sages established that from 30 days before a Yomtov, the Rabbis should lecture about the halachos of that festival. Even after the destruction of the Beis Hamikdosh, this institution remaine and each sage in his place would teach the laws of the Yomtov so that the people would know what to do on the Yomtov itself. In later generations, when printed works of halocha became readily available, it is a mitzvah for each person to learn the laws of the festival before the festival, until he becomes expert in them and knows that which he has to do. ~ adapted from the Shulchan Oruch HaRav simon 429
There are many halachos to learn before Pesach, especially the halachos of the Seder night. With our busy lifestyles, it is not always easy to make the time to go through the halachos as Shulchan Oruch requires. This program has been designed to help you be able to learn all of the halachos of the Seder from the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Oruch (simon 472 – 481) in the 30 days before Pesach this year. The halachos have been divided into daily units which can be studied in under 15 minutes a day for 6 days a week. The program runs from after Purim until Erev Pesach and can easily fit into your daily schedule.
You can learn the halachos on your own or with a chavrusa, listen to an audio shiur or join one of the daily shiurim which will take place at the Yeshivah Centre and in the Kollel Menachem Community Beis Medrash.
