(Courtesy of Anshe Chesed) This past week, members of Linden’s Congregation Anshe Chesed completed Seder Zeraim with the Mishna Yomi cycle. Thanks to Rabbi Yossi Katz’s daily Mishna podcast, the participants learned 655 Mishnayos in under a year. They reached this tremendous achievement by consistently learning two Mishnayos a day, a small amount that built up to a huge accomplishment. As Rabbi Katz stated, “It is an accomplishment in the quantity of Torah, but more importantly an accomplishment that despite their busy schedules, they found time to introduce learning into each day. They made learning Torah a priority.”
The whole shul was part of the celebration this past Shabbat, featuring a siyum with dancing and a special kiddush. Additionally, members who completed Seder Zeraim were surprised with a cookie platter, brought to their door on Erev Shabbat.
Mazel tov to Rabbi Katz, Michael Newman, Eitan Yadlovker, Yair Liebert, Steve Geltzer, Jonathan Falk and everyone else who completed Seder Zeraim. Anshe Chesed looks forward to celebrating more Torah study in our community. Rabbi Katz’s Mishna Yomi podcast is available at https://mishnayomirabbikatz.transistor.fm/subscribe.
