For the third year, the 8th grade bochurim at Cheder Chabad of Monsey are participating in a weekly Minchas Chinuch shiur.
The shiur is held every Wednesday evening and is given by Rabbi Sender Lustig, the Rosh Mesivta of Mesivta Lubavitch of Monsey.
The Minchas Chinuch is a legal commentary on the Sefer Hachinuch. The Sefer HaChinuch systematically discusses the 613 mitzvos, their Biblical source, and philosophical underpinnings – while the Minchas Chinuch serves as a halachic commentary through the perspective of the Gemorah and Rishonim.
The bochurim are learning Mitzvah 31 that deals with the halachic intricacies of Mitzvas Kiddush Shabbos B’dvorim.
Even though the shiur is voluntary and held after hours, the entire 8th grade participates, with talmidim that live out of town sleeping at friends’ homes so as not to miss it.
The popularity of the shiur has also drawn local boys that don’t learn in the cheder to participate as well.
“We thank Rabbi Lustig for the time and effort he invests in delivering such a beautiful shiur, and wish our bochurim much hatzloch as they grow in Limud Hatorah,” the Yeshiva’s Hanhallah said.
