What is Daf HaYomi B’Halacha?

Years ago, the Daf HaYomi B’Halacha program was initiated to enable one to know the Halachos of daily living. Thousands of people worldwide have gained from the daily limud of Mishnah Berurah and Mussar from Sifrei Chofetz Chaim. The Daf HaYomi B’Halacha program’s learning methods have been encouraged by Torah leaders, as a way to become proficient in Halacha. The program entails learning a daily page of Mishnah Berurah, a page of “Biurim Umusafim” (found in the Dirshu Mishnah Berurah) – featuring present-day halachic practices from today’s Leading Rabbonim, as well as a segment of Mussar from Sifrei Chofetz Chaim. To see available shiurim on today’s limud, click here.
