Torah Scholars (Avreichim)

The Kollel is occupied daily by fourteen Torah Scholars who toil in the wisdom of the Talmud and Halacha. Every day, these scholars give of their time and knowledge to the people of the community making themselves available for individualized and group learning sessions.
