An overwhelming 750 bochurim from across 25 American Yeshivas took the first Halikut test this Sunday.

Now in its fifth year, Halikut has raised the bar for Likkutei Sichos learning among thousands of Bochurim, through its intense learning regimen and scrutinizing tests.

A record 90% of English-speaking Lubavitcher Bochurim between Shiur gimmel mesivta and shiur beis zal will be studying Cheilek Chof Hei of Likkutei Sichos this winter.

Unique in its learning regimen, Halikut is styled for the participants to come out knowing the full sefer virtually by heart, at the end of the four months taking a scrutinizing test on all of the material.

Halikut is a project of Vaad Hatmimim led with dedication by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Altein, together with Halikut’s organizers Mendel Goldman and Berel Danow

Each year the Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim invites hundreds of Talmidim Hashluchim from over 30 Yeshivos around the world to join a special Kinus featuring interesting workshops and presentations with tips and suggestions to assist them in their important Shlichus. 

This year’s Kinus began with Rabbi Leibel Schapiro addressing the group about the importance of their Shlichus. Afterward, four veteran Shluchim, Avi Baitelman, Shaya Begun, Yisroel Cohen, and Levi Shemtov shared tips from their personal experience on Shlichus.

Following that, the Shluchim received a briefing from Mendel Goldman, the director of the Vaad’s year-round programs, on all the upcoming exciting programs to look forward to throughout the year. After taking a group photo the Talmidim Hashluchim sat down and enjoyed a lavish dinner. Before leaving each Shliach was gifted a 'Sefer Yalkut Levi Yitzchak - Michtavei Hachasuna,' Compiled by Rabbi Dovid Dubov in appreciation for all their hard work.

Halikut Launches For Fifth Year!

Blog Cover.png

After four years of phenomenal success, Halikut is being launched by Vaad Hatmimim for its fifth consecutive year.

A unique program for Bochurim in Shiur Gimmel Mesivtas and Zals, Halikut has seen hundreds of bochurim from over 25 yeshivos learning and memorizing a full volume of Likkutei Sichos.

Revolutionary in its effectiveness on bochurim’s learning, each bochur takes three general tests which then qualify him to attend the Halikut Siyum, where the grand test is taken on all the Sichos at once. This in effect requires the Bochurim to review the Sichos many times so that they remember all the details of the entire sefer.

New to this year, the program is adding an international division, with yeshiva’s from across the globe participating.

This year hundreds of Bochurim from across the globe will thoroughly learn the 25th volume of Likkutei sichos over the next three months.

For its launch, every Yeshiva had an event featuring one of their respective Hanhala members delivering a presentation about the importance of dedicating oneself to study the Rebbe’s Torah. A special promo video was featured at the launch.

The website boasts a plethora of premade Kovtzim, Mivtzas, editable canva templates, and much more, saving the Shluchim countless hours of work and allowing them to focus on the primary purpose of their Shlichus; sitting in Zal and learning Torah. The website also features tips and suggestions from previous Shluchim and Hanhola members to assist the Shluchim in doing their work efficiently and effectively.

The website was compiled using material from previous Talmidim Hashluchim and will continue to grow as more Shluchim send in their work. If you have something to share please email [email protected].

Let's talk about today's Bochur.


WhatsApp Image 2022-08-28 at 10.53.41 AM.jpeg

Let's talk about today's Bochur.

A strong, level headed Yeshiva student, doing his best to make his mark, and living a life infused with Chassidus, and a connection to the Rebbe.

The Bochur of today has vastly different struggles than the Bochur of yesterday, can face incredible challenges in his quest to strengthen his hiskashrus to the Rebbe. To that end, and with the guidance of Hanhalas around the world, led by Reb Yoel Kahan A"H, Vaad Hatmimim was founded 20 years ago. 

Over the last 20 years the Vaad Hatmimim has, through a wide variety of mediums, been there to help Bochurim. 

In celebration of 20 years, we will highlight some of the most impactful and revolutionary endeavors of “the Vaad”, starting with “Halikut”. 

Today's Bochur is innovative.

Today's Bochur is passionate.

Today's Bochur wants more.

Through the Halikut program, one of many programs established by Vaad Hatmimim, Bochurim are given resources and taught skills to strengthen their connection to the Rebbe.

It starts with simply learning a Sicha, but it does not end there.

Imagine being able to truly understand, grasp and thoroughly know a full volume of Likutei Sichos - in a way you have never before.

Through interactive and engaging material, as well as cutting edge training tools and regularly scheduled quizzes and tests, Halikut brings the Sichos of the Rebbe to life, in a way that today's Bochur can truly grasp, understand, internalize and memorize.

There are several levels, and Bochurim can register at the entry point they feel most comfortable with, and proceed at their own pace.

Halikut is known in the Yeshivah world as the "gold standard" of learning the Rebbes Torah and has uplifted thousands of Bochurim over the last few years.

Many respected Rabbonim and Mashpiyim have personally endorsed the Halikut program, including the late great R' Yoel Kahn A"h, and so many others, who encouraged their respected Bochurim and Yeshivos to participate.

Throughout the process, Bochurim are guided and trained through various tiers of testing and incentives, ultimately culminating in well-publicized finals, where the Bochurim who obtained the highest marks compete for the coveted first prize.

Today's Bochur faces unprecedented challenges, and it's incumbent on all of us to instill the love, chayus and passion for the Rebbe's Torah which we were so fortunate to see and hear for ourselves, in their lives. The Rebbe's Torah gives a Bochur the passion and tools to survive in today's tumultuous world- and Bochurim experience that in an unparalleled way while taking part of Halikut.

Vaad Hatmimim is putting the needs of TODAY'S BOCHURIM FIRST, And Halikut is just one example.

 איש בשורה אנכי היום

I would like to share the good news with you, that the Vaad Hatmimim has just closed on a house near the Ohel - to be used exclusively for the Bochurim who come to the Ohel for Shabbos and Yom Tov.

The house was sponsored by Reb Eliyahu and Yonah Shlosberg in memory of his father, Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Shlosberg A”H.

May Hashem grant us the Koach and ability to continue to help the Bochurim, B’gashmius Ub’ruchnius.

Mivtza Hanachos launched for the fourth year in Mesivtas across America


Blog Cover.png

The Vaad Hatmimim has launched the Hanachos program, now in its fourth year, in 15 Mesivtas across America. The program, in preparation for Gimmel Tammuz, encourages bochurim to watch Farbrengens of the Rebbe and summarize the Sicha in their own words. 

Every week two videos of the Rebbe are shown in Yeshivah, starting at between five to ten minutes, gradually increasing in time, culminating in the final week with thirty-minute videos. For the many Bochurim who are not used to watching Farbrengens or long videos of the Rebbe, this program motivates them to focus on a full Farbrengen of the Rebbe and understand what the Rebbe is saying.

Bochurim who successfully pass all the Hanachos receive an automatic prize of $50 - $100 in Kehos, depending on what level of the program they join. The final top three Bochurim with the highest mark on their Hanachos will each be awarded the entire set of Toras Menachem.

Many Bochurim have already expressed their appreciation for this important Mivtza in the past, stating that they were never able to properly follow and understand a Farbrnegen of the Rebbe until they joined the Hanachos program.

Many parents and Hanhola members have also expressed their thanks and gratitude for having this program where the Bochurim are involved in Farbrengens of the Rebbe while building a skill that will surely help them for many years to come. 

Hanachos is a project of the Vaad Hatmimim in partnership with JEM, directed by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Altein along with Mendel Banon, Mendel Goldman, Levi Katz, Berel Marozov, Levi Shemtov, and Zellig Shemtov, the Shluchim in all 15 participating Yeshivas and the JEM team led by Rabbi Elkanah Shmotkin and Mendel Gourarie.
