Does anyone know what one should prepare himself with before taking a semicha bechina on Basar B'chalav with Rav Moshe Heinemann?

  • I heard he tests guys on pischei tshuvos – Moshe Jun 6 at 20:25
  • A few people who took their bechinos with Rav Heinemann told me they needed to know the Shulchan Aruch, Shach, Taz, and Pischei Teshuvos really well. Hatzlacha! – NJM Jun 6 at 20:46
  • I heard he expects you to know every shach and taz by heart – robev Jun 6 at 20:50
  • You serious @robev? – Moshe Jun 6 at 20:53

    I received semicha from him. You have to know every shach, taz, and pischei teshuva. You don’t have to know them by heart verbatim (it is open book), but he expects to be able to find each one quickly and speak out the basic idea right away. Also, though it’s not officially part of the curriculum, he expects you to have dabbled in the relevant pri megadims. – ASL Jun 6 at 22:53
