“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah (is) a group of Torah scholars who learn Mishnah or Gemara for those who want to arrange a siyum (completion of a Torah portion)… The greatest honor for a departed individual is to study Torah in his honor, and specifically through this organization, which in addition to Torah study, supports Torah scholars.”

Rabbi Hershel Schachter
Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary
(RIETS) New York, NY


“It is a great matter to participate in this important endeavor.”

Rabbi Yaakov Forchheimer
Dayan
Lakewood, NJ


“I am delighted to endorse the work of the Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah / The Society for Mishnah Study in general, and especially in memory of a deceased righteous person. Mishnah… articulates the nitzchiyut (eternity) of every Jewish soul, and the recognition that such study is inspired by the passing of a precious soul can only bring merit to that individual and serve as a source of comfort to all who knew him.”

Rabbi Steven Pruzansky
Congregation Bnai Yeshurun
Teaneck, NJ


“There are few acts that are more comforting to the mourner than learning Mishnayot for their loved one. With brilliant insight, our sages understood that “Mishnah” and “Neshamah” (soul) are deeply intertwined.”

Rabbi Elazar Muskin
Young Israel
Century City, CA


“Anyone who commissions this Society to study Mishnayos in the merit of a departed relative, beyond the actual Mishnah study which is very good for the soul of the departed, additional merit is conferred upon the soul, since through this they are upholding Torah scholars.”

Rabbi Avrohom Spitzer
Congregation Toldos Yaakov Yosef
Lakewood, NJ


“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah is to be commended for the great chesed (kindness) they are providing for the departed and their families.”

Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz
Woodside Synagogue
Silver Spring, MD


“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah is to be praised for placing this important merit within the reach of every family. The Torah study that they arrange will bring comfort to the family, and precious merit to the soul of the deceased.”

Rabbi Mordechai Rhine
Young Israel of Cherry Hill
Cherry Hill, NJ


“Often… family members aren’t capable of learning Mishnayos at a crucial time, for many reasons. How wonderful it is that an organization was founded solely for this purpose! I envy the merits and rewards of the founder of this program.”

Rabbi Dovid Max,
Community Torah Center of Bucks County,
Richboro, PA


“The Society for Mishnah Study is to be commended for making this great source of merit accessible as a public service.”

Rabbi Lawrence Teitelman
Young Israel of New Hyde Park

“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah has provided a great service to all Jewish families. They should have much success in their endeavors.”

Rabbi Yechiel Biberfeld, Rosh Kollel
Philadelphia Community Kollel
Philadelphia, PA


“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah provides an invaluable service for those who have difficulty finding a meaningful yet manageable way to memorialize and bring merit to someone whom they’ve recently lost. The study brings not only merit to the departed, but inspiration to the mourner.”

Rabbi Gedalyah Berger
Fleetwood Synagogue

“We would like to express our Hakaras HaTov for completing the Mishnayos on the yortzeit of our beloved father, Mr. Arnold Mailman (Z’L). The prompt, efficient, and professional service coupled with expertise and compassion added greater meaning to the yortzeit day. Much Hatzlacha for this wonderful opportunity that unites Klal Yisroel in Limud Torah.”

Sara Leah Frid

“I had no idea what to do for the shloshim (thirtieth day after burial) for my Abba, of blessed memory. You were so understanding, patient, and kind, and arranged for a rabbi to learn Mishnayot. Then, the last day of shloshim, I had the zechus (merit) to learn together with the wonderful rabbi on the phone!”

Elisheva Malka Hasson Bronx, NY


“Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah was extremely comforting and helpful. Knowing that the entire Mishnayos were completed on time with your personal help was a tremendous comfort.”

Nusie Rosenberg, Lawrence, NY


“It was about a week before the shloshim of my grandfather, and we wanted to make a siyum (completion of a Torah portion) for the merit of his neshamah (soul), but we were still missing some tractates. All I had to do was call Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah, and with no hassle, it was taken care of within the week.”

Yanke Weisz, Lakewood, NJ


“This service is handled with professionalism and I have tremendous confidence in the fact that Talmedi Chachamim (Torah Scholars) and Yirei Shamayim (G-d fearing individuals) are my shleichim (messengers) to Hakodosh Boruch Hu (G-d).”

“…Thank you so much for providing this incredibly kind and thoughtful service for bereaved families… Your organization is doing a true Chesed Shel Emes (the highest form of kindness) for the departed.”

Adam J. Goldberg,
Chevrah Kaddisha of Passaic-Clifton, NJ


“There are many families that would like to have Mishnayos learnt as a zechus (merit) for the neshamah (soul), but do not have the ability to get fifty to sixty people to take on the responsibility. Your service, for these people especially, is a valued option during a very difficult time.”

Leon Goldenberg,
Chevrah Kaddisha of Flatbush, NY
