About us

what is a kollel?

The word Kollel comes from the Hebrew word "klal," which means group or community.  A Kollel is a group of Jewish families dedicated to and united by a shared vision who live, learn, and teach in the community.  The Memphis Kollel brings a dynamic group of scholars and their families to Memphis with the mission to enrich and engage the greater Memphis Jewish community with inspired Torah living and learning.

To achieve these objectives, the Memphis Kollel operates on two parallel yet complementary levels. It is an institution of higher learning that brings together Kollel Scholars who devote themselves to intensive personal Torah study.  This Rabbinic Fellowship spends time every day deeply involved in maximizing their individual growth and scholarship.

But secondly, and with equal devotion, the Memphis Kollel Scholars reach out to the community, collaborating with other organizations and institutions, to teach, educate, and inspire, men, women, and children of all ages and all religious backgrounds and affiliations.
