Currently in its fourth successful year, the Learn and Network Kollel will be relocating for the winter zman, on Monday, December 9th,to Bais Medras V’yelipol, 1142 East County Line Rd. between Brook Rd. and Ridge Ave. The kollel has gained renown as a place where working bnei Torah could feel comfortable having a solid learning seder.
The Learn and Network Kollel has a strong seder between five thirty and seven in the evening. It is a Community Open bais Medrash for all to come learn freely noted for its flexibility so that men are not limited of learning only if committing to a chavrusah and that regardless of whether one comes on a daily basis or select times during the week, they can still be a part of the learning seder while feeling connected to a learning seder. Rabbi Zalmen Raber delivers a Daf Yomi shiur at six o’clock, noted maggid shiur, Rabbi Shmuel Speigel gives shiurim and arranges chavrusahs, There will be a chaburah learning Mesecta Megila finishing the mesachta before purim. A fully stocked coffee room will be available on a daily basis for those coming after work to rejuvenate themselves.
Following the learning seder, which is the focal point of the Kollel, is the opportunity to network, pool resources and learn vast amounts about career options and the business world. There are professional presenters who give comprehensive classes about their areas of expertise in a wide range of topics on weekly basis.
The kollel accommodates the needs of all men including business men, those in chinuch, kolleleit transitioning to the work force, and any ben Torah seeking a structured learning framework. The Learn and Network Kollel fills a great need in Lakewood. As R’ Honig says, “Our hatzlacha is for someone to sit and learn and finally feel a sense of belonging, structure and pride in his fulfillment. From the Torah comes the brachah.”
