Lakewood, NJ – Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah/The Society for Mishnah Study is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on helping Jewish families and individuals that have lost their loved ones. Their scholars harness the power of Torah study to bring merit to the deceased. The spokesperson for the organization noted that their mission is to study Mishnah on behalf of those who want to elevate the Neshamos of the deceased through the merit of Torah studies.
As a group of scholars, Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah ensures that mourners get all of the help and support that they need to complete a specific course of study that requires help in achievement of that goal. Interested persons or families who wish to be a part of this practice are encouraged to make contact with the scholars to learn more about the variety of services offered. They can also visit their website to explore the myriad of services and resources available to them.
Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah’s services are focused on ways to achieve an aliyas neshamah for the dearly departed, which operates on the core Jewish belief that this world is a preparation ground for the world to come. While the deceased cannot earn new merits, their surviving family members may be able to contribute to their merits through the study of Mishnah, reciting the kaddish prayer and the performance of mitzvos.
One of the most powerful merits for the departed is the study of Mishnah, the ancient texts that are the foundation of the Oral Law. In fact, Mishnah study has been universally adopted as a customary practice for those wishing to provide merit or the aliyas neshamah of a loved one. Yet this area of study is often difficult for the layperson to learn and understand. And those who are capable of Mishnah study often do not have the time to commit to such a project. Thus, this eternal merit is not always utilized, to the detriment of the departed.
Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah was founded specifically with this need in mind. To this end, Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah has assembled a stellar team of serious Torah scholars who have undertaken the mission of studying the Mishnah, from one chapter to a complete order of the Mishnah to the entire Six Orders of Mishnah on behalf of departed souls.
Now, the power of Mishnah study is available to all who seek its merits.
The spokesperson for the scholars said: “Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah is here to help. Our collection of books and audiovisual materials; Comfort, Courage and Clarity blog; Mishnah charts; Yahrzeit reminders; and more, are tangible resources you can utilize in your journey toward hope and healing. We also provide educational materials to guide family and friends of Aveilim in supporting their loved ones. Mourning a loved one and comforting a loved one are some of life’s greatest challenges. Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah is also dedicated to providing support and encouragement to help you through this trying time.”
Interested family members can explore the different types of Mishnah study services available, including the complete Mishnah study plan, daily Mishnah study plan, Chavrusa study, hands-on Mishnah study plan or they can also choose the Learning on the Yahrtzeit option.
