In December 2021, Torah Initiatives released the All Mishnah app, designed to make learning the two daily mishnayot easier and more accessible. In the Mishnah Yomi program, participants can quickly review the two mishnayot of the day and complete all of Mishnah in under six years.
This latest addition to Torah Initiative’s family of apps features curated content and a clean, user- friendly interface. All Mishnah offers world-class speakers, including Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz, Rabbi Fischel Schachter, and Rabbi Zecharia Resnik. Other resources include a Mishnah Yomi calendar, different learning track settings, and a children’s section.
My son Binyamin and I have been learning Mishnah Yomi using the All Mishnah app since the cycle began and we couldn’t be more grateful - it’s been a game changer for our ability to learn together while in different locations. We especially appreciate the kids’ and adult versions.”
This program, which encourages Jr. High students to learn two mishnayot per day, resulted in over 1,000 enthusiastic students in eight schools signing up to participate. Many of these students became mishnayot ambassadors in their schools which included promoting the program, coordinating shiurim, encouraging their friends to learn, distributing free ArtScroll mishnayot and sometimes delivering the shiurim themselves. Students were rewarded with prizes, special events, and of course, awesome swag.
All Parsha helps me come into Shabbos prepared to have a meaningful Shabbos meal with my family."
With the All Mishnah app, I’m able to stay on track with my daily learning. Life is hectic. This app helps me stay connected. Every day I listen to Rabbi Lebowitz’s amazing shiur on the two mishnayos. Thank you!”
As the All Daf platform entered its third year, the momentum increased, and the learning continued to flourish. Additional maggidei shiur and supplemental materials were added to aid in the learning of the daily daf or any masechta one is learning.
A number of new features were added to the app:
OU Torah is proud to present a number of series originating from live shiurim delivered at the OU Israel Center in Jerusalem. Current offerings include Likutei Halachot by Rabbi Azarya Berzon, Halachic and Hashkafic Issues in Contemporary
Society by Rabbi Anthony Manning, and The Thought of Rav Soloveitchik by Rabbi Aaron Goldscheider.
The OU’s Shoshana Grossman Nach Yomi began in 2007. In its eighth cycle, the Nach Yomi took a giant step forward with the introduction of Torat Imecha Nach Yomi from the OU Women’s Initiative.
A featured video introduced us to an Israeli farmer during shemittah that coincided with learning Maseches Shviis in Mishnah Yomi. We met Amir Dromi and Ilana and Doron Toweg, who shut down their farm this year to observe
shemittah. Other videos explored the complex issues of the international dateline with Rabb Reit and Rabbi Heber, as well as the significance of the curves of the shofar.
The Semichas Chaver Program is the fastest-growing practical halacha chaburah in the world with over 140 locations and over 3,600 weekly participants. SCP’s rich content is meant to be imparted to family
members and includes Q&A’s for the Shabbos table and comics for kids. The chaburahs are practical and fun and include a focus on the ta’amei hamitzvos. Upon completion of each topic and exam, every member gets the Semichas Chaver certificate signed by Rav Neventzal, Rishon Le’tzion Rav Shlomo Amar, and Rav Hershel Schachter.
I’m always trying to learn, but there is such a difference when there is a bechina and I can really substantiate what I’ve learned. It has truly changed my whole family’s Shabbos experience.”
