The Kollel

The Chut Shel Chessed Kollel caters to married students. Over 300 married men – ranging from beginners to ordained rabbis on their way to becoming Rabbinical Judges (Dayanim) – are currently studying in our Kollel. In addition to an intensive full-day program, most of our students participate in evening outreach programs, demonstrating the beauty of Judaism to their fellow Israelis.


In fact, Chut shel Chessed boasts Torah learning 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, in multiple Kollels in addition to the main Kollel: the Midnight Kollel, the Zohar Kollel, the Tehillim (Psalms) Kollel, the Erev Shabbat Kollel, the Beit Hora’a (Kollel to become a Rabbi) and many more.


Many well known rabbis teach in the Kollel, including Rabbi Yehoshua HaCohen, author of Kerem Yehoshua. Rabbi Yaakov Yosef zt”l, son of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef – head of the Sephardi community in Israel taught Jewish law for years until his passing. The Rosh Kollel of the Beit Hora’a and Posek (Rabbinical Judge) of Chut shel Chessed is Dayan Rabbi Elchanan Shalom Elgrod shlita, who is recognized around the world as being one of the top poskim of our generation.


Members of our Kollel receive monthly stipends. In addition to creating rabbinical leaders, the Kollel urges a large percentage of its students to join the workforce and become financially self-sufficient members of the community. Many of these students learn in the Midnight Kollel, which learns from 2AM – 8AM.


The Kollel’s annual budget is more than $2 million annually.
