Jr. Record Breakers

Rochel Burstyn

Welcome back to the Jr. Record Breakers contest, where we celebrate anything great, big, small, funny, or unusual — whether it’s a collection, a deed, a goal met, or anything else you can think of! Today we’re meeting Moshe Freidman of Yerushalayim, with his amazing amount of mishnayos learned by heart, and a class of bookworms in Flatbush who were particularly inspired by Jr.’s Record Breakers column

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Name: Moshe Freidman Location: Yerushalayim Jr. Record Fame: Most mishnayos learned be’al peh (by heart) in a short amount of time More Details: Near the end of fourth grade last year, Moshe’s class was told something exciting: there would be a concert at the end of the year and afterwards, the boys would be tested to see how many mishnayos they had learned by heart. Prizes would be given to the boys who memorized the most. Moshe immediately rose to the challenge! In just those last few weeks of school, he memorized all the mishnayos in Rosh Hashanah, Chagigah, Pesachim, Beitzah, Berachos, Yuma, Succah, and Taanis — 400 mishnayos! He also learned the entire sugya ofTefillasHashachar by heart.
