A newly established Kollel Erev for the Monsey community gathers community members twice a week for structed learning on topics in Halacha and Chassidus. Steady participants are given monetary incentives as well.
A newly established Kollel Erev for the Monsey Chabad community gives residents the opportunity to spend two evenings a week immersed in Torah study in a structured and organized fashion.
The Kollel takes place twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8:30 to 9:30 PM. Even though the Kollel is only a few weeks old, over twenty participants show up on a steady basis, in addition to others who show up from time to time. The kollel is a project of NCFJE and is coordinated by Rabbi Levi Tiechtel.
Participants are given the option to sign up for the Monday night Halacha track, the Wednesday night Chassidus track, or both. Each kollel member who commits to come for at least one month receives a stipend for each time they come.
Both tracks offer prepared booklets, focusing on a different topic in Halacha or Chassidus. Shiurim are also given on the selected topic, with guest rabbonim and mashpi’im giving a deeper perspective on the topic being learned.
“Baruch Hashem, in the short time since we founded the Kollel, we have seen tremendous hatzlacha,” Rabbi Teichtel told Anash.org. “We hope to continue expanding over the coming weeks, giving even more locals the opportunity to infuse their week with limmud haTorah.”
