ABOUT THE KOLLEL
The Kollel Boker Zichron Boruch was started for the purpose of giving students and professionals the opportunity to grow in their understanding of Torah. Each day, students and professionals alike join together in a Yeshiva-style environment for an hour of Torah study. Participants are paired up with a learning partner (chavrusa) and are given a booklet containing the relevant Torah sources to complete by the end of the week. The content of these booklets address specific areas of Jewish law related to the portion of the Talmud being studied. At the end of each week, one of the participants delivers a group lecture (chabura) to the entire group based on that week's learning. These presentations add additional insights and analyses that not only contribute to the depth of understanding of the material, but also enhance the sense of unity among participants based on their common love of Torah study.
Kollel Boker Morning Program
The Kollel Boker Morning Program is geared towards those who wish to get an early start to their day. With davening at 6:40 am and learning from 7:30-8:30 am, this program enables its participants to start their day with some serious Torah study.
Sushi and Learn
Every Wednesday night at 9:15 pm Rabbi Smith gives a shiur at his home. Sushi is served!
One on One Learning
Kollel Boker also offers one on one learning.
The Kollel Boker atmosphere is warm, vibrant and family like. You can learn at a basic or more b'iyun level. You will find a chavrusa who wishes to learn in a similar style. You will be able to easily relate to the maarei mekomos that Rabbi Smith distributes each week, as well as to the weekly Friday morning chaburas delivered by participants on a rotating basis.
"I feel empty any day I start off without Kollel Boker," is a common sentiment amongst our members.
Kollel Boker is a highly rewarding experience that becomes an indispensable part of the day, infusing ruchniyus and energy throughout the day.
Kollel Boker Zichron Boruch
With its membership currently at 65, Kollel Boker is comprised of working professionals who commit to learning every day same time, same place, much like in yeshiva - tests and all. Each person is assigned a chavrusa who they can learn closely with as the entire group works through the same gemara every session. A weekly Friday chabura ends each week with a different assigned talmid giving the shiur, giving everyone equal opportunity to challenge themselves not only to learn well, but also to teach well.
Ichud Hashas Zichron Binyomin Tzvi
Weekends aren't only for fun and leisure, they are a great time for learning too! Such is the belief of Ichud Hashas, a Shabbos and Sunday learning program for working professionals. The program features a more b'kiyus learning style, and allows participants to learn wherever they physically are. The program only keeps getting bigger and will soon include monthly tests, a nightly learning program in Miami Beach, and monthly get-togethers for all participants and their families to spend a fun afternoon together.
N'shei Ichud Hashas Zichron Binyomin Tzvi
While the first three programs are for the men, N'shei Ichud Hashas caters to the women in the community, typically the wives of the men involved in the other learning programs. The N'shei offers women their own opportunity to grow spiritually and just as importantly, the opportunity to connect and spend time with the other women. There is always a variety of events on the N'shei's calendar, from fun social gatherings, to talks from guest speakers, cooking classes, and more.
