Chevra Lomdei Mishna Provides Invaluable Service to Thousands of Jews Worldwide

Chevra lomdei mishnah is the world’s premier organization dedicated to providing merit for the deceased through Mishnah study. Since its inception, members of Chevra lomdei mishnah have learned thousands of chapters of Mishnah and completed Shishah Sidrei Mishnah (Six Orders of the Mishnah) as a unit hundreds of times.

The Mishnah is the first major codification of the Jewish oral tradition.  Edited by Rabbi Yehudah HaNasi (Judah the Prince) in the third century CE, the Mishnah consists of six volumes. 

Rabbi Baruch Goldberg, Program Director at Chevra lomdei mishna, explains: “Each volume contains thousands of legal, allegoric and ethical teachings known as mishnayos.  These teachings form the backbone of Judaism.  Every word of the text is encoded with wisdom.”

For many generations, it has been the custom of Jews around the world to learn these teachings in the merit of their departed loved ones.  There are many sources attesting to the power and importance of this merit for the deceased. Today, Chevra lomdei mishna makes it possible for any Jew, anywhere in the world, no matter their ability or level of knowledge, to carry on this tradition and gift their loved ones with everlasting merit.  Its network of dedicated rabbis and scholars study an impressive body of mishnayos each year, in time for shloshims and yahrtzeits, as per patrons’ needs.

Completing the entire Shishah Sidrei Mishnah (Six Orders of the Mishnah) is a monumental feat.  Chevra lomdei mishnah has assembled an exceptional team of Torah scholars who have the knowhow and determination to accomplish this feat on a regular basis.

Rabbi Goldberg notes: “It takes a layman who has a strong yeshivah education an hour a day for an entire year to complete the whole Mishnah.  For someone with little or no formal Jewish education, it would take much more time.  It is very commendable for someone to learn for their deceased parent, and even more so to complete the entire Shishah Sidrei Mishnah, but many simply do not have the time and/or ability to complete the task in time.  Our experienced rabbis are extremely capable and singularly dedicated to their learning responsibilities.”

Today, Chevra lomdei mishnah is dedicated to helping ever more people accomplish their goals on time. Rabbi Goldberg describes this vision by explaining, “We have been quietly helping people honor their loved ones for over a decade.  Our network of rabbis are always available so that we can be of service to anyone in need.”
