A new evening kolel in Crown Heights pairs up community members with melamdim for an invigorating learning experience.
In honor of the Shnas Hashivim of the Rebbe’s nesius, Igud Hamelamdim, the Lubavitch teachers’ organization based in Crown Heights, has launched Kolel Meorei Ohr, an evening kolel dedicated to pairing up melamdim with community members.
The theme of this new kolel is based in the words of our Rebbeim that teachers are meant to be luminaries, not only inside the classroom, but to invigorate the community as a whole.
The kolel has started with two weekly sessions, on Mondays and Wednesdays, 8:30-9:30 PM. The learning takes place at Mishkan Moshe, 580 Crown St, a beautiful and comfortable location for Torah study.
The first session was graced by Rabbi Michoel Seligson who shared inspirational words from the Rebbe on the importance of limud haTorah in the community.
Another special guest at the kolel was Rabbi Efraim Mintz, director of JLI and member of the Vaad Ruchni of Oholei Torah, who spoke about the role of melamdim as luminaries “meorei“, and their task to transmit that light “ohr” to all those around them.
Both the melamdim and their chavrusos are excited by this new endeavor. The air was charged with an excitement for learning and participants left energized.
The kolel is looking forward to broadening its membership. Join today and discover the beauty of this unique type of chavrusa learning.
