(Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 11:30 AM)

Thousands of talmidei Yerushalayim from 50 mosdos have been studying the sefer מידות ודרך ארץ (Midos V’Derech eretz) for the first exam that is scheduled immediately after Chanukah.

The sefer includes מסכת אבות and portions of מסכת אבות דרבי נתן as well as halachos from Shulchan Aruch along with added text from the lives of tzaddikim. This special edition of the book being used for the program also contains photos of gedolei yisrael beginning from the year 5752.

Dozens of yeshivos have join in the Degel Yerushalayim program, including many night study programs, incorporating the text into the daily learning schedule.
