Kollel Tzioni, our flagship Shlichut service, is entering its nineteenth year of operation. The Kollel is typically comprised of at least one couple including a Rosh Kollel together with four ‘bachurim’ (scholars who have completed their army service). Through Torah study, teaching and outreach, Torah MiTzion shlichim are able to impart their love for learning, for the State of Israel, and for their fellow Jew to all ages (from school children to golden-agers) in their host communities. The Kollel model is designed to reinforce Zionist Jewish identity and strengthen Torah knowledge among all sectors of the Jewish community.
The Torani-Tzioni Center’s team of shlichim are specially recruited and trained in Israel in order to arrive as a cohesive group ready to impact their host community. Their home base may be set up in a school though a synagogue or community center may also serve as a fitting host location. The Rosh Kollel and his wife both serve in leading rolls both as educators and leaders ensuring that their team of shlichim remain active in initiating programs and conducting learning sessions with a wide cross-section of members of the host community.
