Which Rabbonim give a semicha based on a written test (as opposed to requiring one to complete a program under them)? Are they only on Basar Bechalav and Ta'aruvos, only on Shabbos, only on Niddah or on all three?

  • There is no advantage one way or the other,some semichas are looked upon better then others irrelevant if its harder or not, – sam Feb 7 '14 at 3:07

    Pirchei Shoshanim is a very hard semicha program(written tests) but it is not as famous as other semichas – sam Feb 7 '14 at 3:10
  • "only on Basar Bechalav, only on Shabbos, only on Niddah or on all three"? Doesn't standard s'micha include also taaruvos? – msh210 Feb 7 '14 at 8:14
  • Yes. I edited to reflect that – Ish Ploni ViKohen Feb 7 '14 at 10:41
