In order to be admitted to our program , one must select which program of study they choose to pursue.
There are 2 levels to the program. All can join Level 1 without a commitment to learning for Semicha. This allows those who would prefer flexibility to their schedule of learning without being committed to a specific target and goal.
Level 2 is the Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim’s Semicha Program which also allows one to sit for Semicha issued through the Yeshiva’s Rabbanim.
In order to receive Semicha one must first fill out our application, then receive a letter of recommendation from his Rav verifying that he knows the individual well and that he is Shomer Torah and Mitzvos WITHOUT Compromise and that he is known to keep all Halachos and live in such a manner. Once all this information is submitted your application will go under review, in front of our board. If accepted you will be able to pursue a semicha certification at the end of the successful completion of the program. Please be advised that Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim, reserves the right to reject anyone from receiving semicha at anytime, if this happens you will not receive a refund. Receiving semicha is a privilege and not something you pay for, it has to be earned. Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim does not sell semichas.
We currently offer one main semicha in Yora Yora, which is in Issur V’heter. None of our other programs will have a semicha upon completion. However if you complete the Issur V’heter program first, once one completes it he can receive an addon to their already existing Semicha, on other subjects as well. Many have achieved this and continue to learn and go onto other areas. The successful participants went on to become Rabbis in their area of the world and spread Torah in their sphere of influence.
Many physicians, lawyers, businessmen and many of the finest minds in the world have joined Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim. In addition, many Rabbanim have joined the programs as a review of their learning so they may better serve their congregrations. Yeshivos as well are starting to adopt the infrastructure and framework that has been developed.
