Mishnayos Baal Peh


The Bernie Ginsburg Mishnayos Baal Peh Program

The Bernie Ginsburg Mishnayos Baal Peh Program at Cheder Menachem, is a program, where children are encouraged to commit basic units of Torah Knowledge to memory.

On Monday, Yud Shevat 5777, we will begin our 17th annual Mishnayos Baal Peh Program as a Present to the Rebbe in honor of Yud Alef Nissan. Talmidim from grades Alef to Ches can learn and be tested on Mishnayos, Tanya and selected parts of Siddur and Yediyos Kloliyos as outlined in the MBP Handbook to be distributed to Talmidim.

Talmidim who have learnt Basi Legani Baal Peh will be able to be tested next week and have these lines count towards Mishnayos Baal Peh.

This year again, we will b​e joining with other bases of Tzivos Hashem worldwide towards an army-wide goal of giving a present to the Rebbe of 770,000 lines of Mishnayos and Tanya Baal Peh by Yud Alef NIssan. Every line by every Talmid helps towards this goal.

Talmidim receive points for the items they learn by heart, which are marked weekly on the Mishnayos Baal Peh Boards hanging in the hallway next to the Shul. At the end of the program, talmidim can choose prizes of Seforim according to how many points they have. the Seforim are awarded at a special ceremony to be held around Shavuos time BEZH.​




The Mishnayos Baal Peh Program, encourages young minds to set their own goals and rewards them when they take from their own time, to excel and to commit to memory the complex and diversified logic system of the Oral Torah. Through this self-motivated pursuit, the students are able to cover material far beyond the regular curriculum of learning.

As the Hebrew letters of Mishnah משנה, are the same as the letters comprising the word Neshama, נשמה, soul, this was an additional reason to have this project in Bernie’s memory. Our Sages tell us that when a Mishna is learned in the memory of a particular soul, it causes an “elevation” to that soul. If anyone of you would like to have the children learn in memory of your dearly departed, please include their “Hebrew” name and their father’s “Hebrew” name.
