Tzurba Merabanan, the high institute for Halacha instruction, on Sunday aligned
the ranks of the thousands following its curriculum for a five-year study cycle
of pertinent daily Halacha issues.
Calling itself the “younger, practical
brother of the Daf Yomi,” the 1923 initiative to learn a daily quota of the
Babylonian Talmud and undertaken by hundreds of thousands of Jews worldwide,
Tzurba Merabanan was founded seven years ago by Rabbi Benzion Algazi to provide
a steady framework for constant Halacha study, focusing on the more practical
halachic topics in the Shulhan Aruch.

military kashrut supervisors, have been learning from the Tzurba Merabanan
booklets, but as of this week, the new Kesher Hahalacha program will be setting
“We have decided to create a revolution not only in the content
of the study, but also in its form. Kesher Hahalacha will be studied with the
same booklets, thus over five years covering the practical issues in the
Shulchan Aruch, for all Jews and in a uniform rhythm, in all the Tzurba centers
in Israel and the world,” Algazi said.
