On Sunday mornings in Crown Heights, one can find working men joining various ‘Sunday Kollels’, utilizing their day off to learn Torah. This past Sunday, Anash.org joined one such Kollel to experience it for themselves.
Founded by Moshe M. Katz with help of Rabbi Mendy Hershkop, the Kollel takes place at 825 Eastern Parkway once a month, open to any working man in the community. Katz, along with Zalmy Yarmush and Shmulie Hecht form the Kollel’s committee.
Founded nearly three years ago, the Kollel was paused during covid-19, and just recently restarted, with plans to continue the Kollel and keep on growing it stronger. This past Sunday, nearly 25 men joined together to study Tanya before davening, followed a Halacha presentation delivered by Rabbi Sholom Ber Shuchat.
The ruchniyus was paired with gashmiyus as well, with breakfast being served to allow all participants to fully focus on the intriguing topics being presented.
“The Kollel is aimed towards guys that don’t get a chance to learn doing the week because of their hectic schedules,” one of the organizers told Anash.org. “The monthly meet-up is a great opportunity to come together, daven and learn with great camaraderie.”
