At Lubavitcher Yeshiva of Crown Heights, the students not only learn halochos and Minhagim, they live it! As part of the Minhagim for Chodesh Elul, expert sofer Rabbi Levi Ladaev came down to the Yeshiva to check the Mezuzos of the 7th grade classes and to demonstrate to the talmidim what it takes to check a mezuzah.
The talmidim got an up close look, plus a real-life, hands-on training on Safrus.
The push for experiencing Halacha in real life is being led by the Menahel of the yeshiva, Rabbi Y. Simpson, whose guidance and leadership has been pushing the Yeshiva to new heights in recent years. The staff also credit Assistant Principal Rabbi B. Wilshansky, who oversees the daily activities at the Yeshiva.
