About the Kollel

Who We Are

Kollel KLAL is a full day Kollel which completes Masechtos and entire sections of its relevent Halochos, with reviews and tests. The Avreichim give weekly chaburos analyzing a sugya in depth.

To date we have completed Maseches Brachos and Maseches Beitzah, making a festive Siyum on the completion of each.

Kollel Klal opened in Cheshvan 5776 with 6 Avreichim. We have doubled our Avreichim and looking to grow. Presently we are hosted by Yeshivas Birchas Mordechai, in Beitar Illit, Israel.

Students come from Ohr Sameach, Aish Hatorah, Neveh Tzion, Mirrer Yeshiva, some having degrees in various areas yet looking to advance in Torah studies, building a base for their future to help Klal Yisrael.
