The New Kollel L’Rabbonei Chabad began its inaugural session with over 80 Rabbanim participants from around the world. The 8-year virtual Kollel is a joint project between Merkos 302’s Beis Medrash L’Shluchim and Kollel L’Rabbonei Chabad. It aims to empower current and aspiring Rabbanim with an advanced understanding of Halacha and Hora’ah.
The Kollel members are currently studying the Halachos of Tevilas Keilim and Hagala and will embark on an 18-month in-depth study of Hilchos Niddah after Pesach. The program will incorporate a unique shimush program allowing the Shluchim to become experts in Hilchos Niddah by learning the yesodos in Crown Heights over a few days. The shimush would then continue over a two-year period through an innovative mailing system developed by the Kollel.
The Rosh Kollel, Rabbi Chaim Hillel Raskin, described how he is very inspired by the dedication of the participants. “Despite the extremely busy schedules of the chavrei hakollel, they are carving out 8-10 hours per week, strongly focusing on in-depth learning and practical shimush.”
Rabbi Betzalel Bassman, the Menahel of the Kollel, told Anash.org that he is very excited to be launching an Ivrit branch of the Kollel after Pesach.
Here is a link for a sample of the shiurim and resources offered at the Kollel.
