Theme of Submission: Learning the entire Shisha Sidrei Mishna by heart
My dear grandmother, Rebbetzin Sara Rochel Schochet obm, expressed that her greatest source of Nachas and joy is seeing her children and grandchildren dedicated to learning and living a life of Torah.
In honor of the upcoming first Yartzeit on the tenth of Adar, and in her memory, with Hashem’s help I have learned the entire Shisha Sidrei Mishna by heart. My father tested me on each Seder (B’vas achas – at one time) and my Menahel Rabbi Greenbaum will IYH be testing me on the entire Shisha Sidrei Mishna b’vas Achas – at one time.
