Warsaw

 

 


The Torah MiTzion Kollel in Warsaw was founded in 2007 by the initiative of the American-born chief Rabbi of Warsaw and Poland, Rabbi Michael Schudrich. The Kollel was established with the support of the L.A. Pincus Fund for Jewish Education in the Diaspora. The fund was founded in 1977 with the goal of initiating formal and informal education projects in Jewish communities around the world.

The Kollel is housed in the Nozyk Synagogue, the only synagogue in Warsaw that survived the Holocaust and is still active. The synagogue is visited yearly by thousands of Jews touring Poland. Rabbi Schudrich or the Rosh Kollel often speaks to the groups, which are mostly comprised of secular Jews who are entering a synagogue for the first or second time in their lives.

In addition to leading the Torah MiTzion Kollel, the Rosh Kollel functions as a Rabbi in the Jewish community and assists the chief Rabbi, Rav Shudrich.

Every morning Polish Jews, alumni of various Yeshivot, come to study in the Kollel, and combine their Torah study with work or secular studies. In addition, the Kollel offers learning opportunities for Jews, descendants of Jews (“Zera Yisrael”) and others who are interested in conversion. Besides leading group learning and one-on-one chavrutot, the Rosh Kollel’s wife offers Group learning in the community and in the JCC, women’s Rosh Chodesh events, Hebrew studies, Kallah classes, and conversion preparation.

To date, the Warsaw Kollel has been led by three different Roshei Kollel – Rav Efraim and Efrat Meisels (2007-2009), Rav Jonathan Daniel and Shoshana Simons (2009-2012), and Rav Moshe and Chava Bloom (2013-present), along with their four children.
