A group of bochurim have recently been tested for Smicha at the Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem.
The Smicha program is headed by Rabbi Yisroel Noach Wichnin, Rosh Yeshiva of the Mayanot Men’s Learning Program and Rabbi Shimon Garbose, of the Rabbinical ordination track within the Mayanot Yeshiva.
The bochurim were tested for Smicha by renowned halachic authority, Rabbi Zalman Nechamia Goldberg of Jerusalem.
In addition to their studies, the bochurim took part in the Mayanot “Rabbis in training” program, mentoring and tutoring students in the Yeshiva’s other tracks, a unique opportunity that has resulted in close-knit friendships over the years, meaningful life experiences and shared inspiration.
The Bochurim were tested on Hilchos Bosor V’Cholov, and “passed with flying colors,” the school’s faculty said. “They put their heart and soul into their learning, as well as many long hours, and it certainly showed.”
Bochurim who have been tested are Rafi Chemel, Avraham Drizin, Moshe Geisinsky, Mendel Gurkow, Motti Klein, Ahron Mishael, Mendy Nemenov, Yosef New, Moshe Rosensweig, Mendel Vogel, Shneur Volfman, and Menachem Mendel, Zirkind.
