TALMUD & HALACHA

Advanced Halacha Shiur
Rabbi Doniel Pransky
Shabbos morning following the Kollel Kiddush, approximately 10:45 – 11:30 am / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men
Rabbi Pransky expounds on halacha, hashkafa or machshava, depending on the week. Topics are varied, fascinating, and always relevant. The classes are generally not text based, but basic knowledge of Torah and halacha is assumed. Come to your Shabbos table with plenty of interesting Torah to share.


Sefer HaMitzvos - Advanced Rambam
Rabbi Ilan D. Feldman
Shabbos morning following the Kollel Kiddush (once a month) / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men
Once a month, Rabbi Feldman will teach the Kollel Shiur on Shabbos morning. The Rambam, in his Sefer HaMitzvos, compiled a comprehensive list of the 613 commandments, together with a brief description of each one. This class undertakes a thorough analysis of the Rambam’s Sefer HaMitzvos, comparing his treatment of the mitzvos both to his own presentation in the Yad HaChazaka, as well as to the positions of other Rishonim. Source material is provided to participants for independent study in advance of each class.


Daf Yomi
Rabbi Reuven Stein
Sunday-Friday 7:40 - 8:30 am, Shabbos one hour before Mincha / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men

 

 


Bavli Baboker
Rabbi Menashe Goldberger
Monday-Friday 6:30 - 7:25 am / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men
You’ve heard of Daf Yomi (a page a day); well, this is Daf Shavui (a page a week)! A very congenial group of men, led by Rabbi Goldberger, starts out their day over a cup of coffee with a moderate-to-advanced Gemara shiur, in which everyone participates. After the weekly daf is completed, relevant halachic texts are consulted to check the final rulings and other practical applications. We are currently learning Maseches Moed Katan which comprises the halachos of Chol Hamoed and Aveilus (mourning). Participants of this group are always on time for the 7:30 Shacharis minyan!


NAVI & CHUMASH

Haftarah Class
Rabbi Reuven Stein
Monday 12:00 pm / Kollel Franco Room / For Men & Women
Rabbi Reuven Stein's classes are peppered with plenty of Torah ethics and morals as our biblical history comes to life. The class is currently studying Haftarahs – you can join at any time!


Navi/Prophets: The Book of Trei Asar (The Twelve Minor Prophets)
Rabbi Menashe Goldberger
Monday 7:30 - 8:30 pm / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men
This class has been running since 1990, when Rabbi Goldberger was in his twenties! Beginning with the Five Books of the Torah, the group has worked its way through the entire Tanach verse-by-verse. Currently, they are studying Trei Asar, with the commentary of The Torah Anthology. These prophecies may be short, but their messages are powerful as they prepare us for the Final Redemption.


Advanced Navi Class: Sefer Melachim

Wednesday 8:00 - 9:00 pm / Franco Room / For Women, offered by BENA

 

 


Hashkafa/Philosophy: Nefesh HaChaim
Rabbi Menashe Goldberger
Shabbos Afternoon one hour before Mincha / Kollel Beis Midrash / For Men
Rav Chaim of Volozhin, the chief disciple of the Gaon of Vilna and the father of the modern-day Yeshiva movement, reveals many deep concepts about the nature of Jewish life and spirituality in this classic and recently-translated work. Men sit around a table in the Beis Midrash and take turns reading the English translation, as Rabbi Goldberger moderates the lively discussion.


Shabbos Morning Chumash Shiur

Shabbos 8:30 am, preceding the Main Minyan / For Men & Women
