From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Rabbinical College of Pretoria ( Hebrew Machon L'Hora'a) is a Chabad Yeshiva in Pretoria, South Africa. It was established in 2001 under the inspiration of late Chief Rabbi Cyril Harris.

The Yeshiva is headed by Rabbi Levi Wineberg, internationally known for his annotated translation of the Tanya. Since the Yeshiva focuses on ordination, students have studied for several years in other institutions. After successfully completing the one year programme, students receive semicha (ordination) from both Rabbi Wineberg and Rabbi Yaacov Warhaftig of Machon Ariel in Jerusalem [1]. To date 98 Rabbis have been ordained at the Yeshiva [2].

The Yeshiva is an important component of the Pretoria Jewish community - there is daily interaction between students and congregants, and one-on-one torah study with members of the community every evening.
