Heichal Hatorah Kollel is one of the foremost institutions of higher rabbinic scholarship in Europe with almost 30 full time members.
At its head is Rabbi Michoel Ber Weissmandl Shlita, an outstanding scholar with the rabbinic experience, knowledge and leadership skills to nurture the young men of the Kollel to their full potential within a rigorous learning program.
The Kollel was founded in Iyar 5762 (May 2002) with great determination and foresight by Rabbi Michoel Ber Weissmandl with the help and encouragement of the heads of the community.
Born out of a need for a relaxed setting and an orderly structure, for rigorous study, for the influx of a dedicated band of young men eager to commit to full time rabbinic scholarship. Its aim from the outset; to nurture dedicated young men to be future leaders of Anglo Jewry.
Starting out with just 6 young men, the Kollel has grown to its current level of 30 with a reputation as a powerhouse of rabbinic thought and erudition.
Known for its high standards, its membership is selected from graduates of some of the finest yeshivos around the world. For several years the Kollel members were deeply involved in a complex Semicha program, an intensive and comprehensive study of all the thousands of intricate Kashrus concepts. This culminated in a thorough examination by many of the greatest Rabbis of our generation, who all exclaimed at the thorough knowledge to detail, of the young scholars, and praised the exceptionally high standards of their study. Each member graduated the Semicha program with an official certificate and glowing tributes.
For the past two years the Kollel Members have been delving into the intricate halochos of Eruvin. Those who completed the entire gamut were thoroughly tested by Rabbonim in London, achieving ordination and much praise. To view pictures please click here.
Many of our past members have graduated to lead their own communities and institutes in various prestigious positions. As we look to the future to continue these successful achievements, in providing leaders for the next generation, we are proud to number the following prominent institutions amongst those which have benefited from our Alumni.
Indeed, Heichal Hatorah Kollel is one of the first ports of call when looking to fill a position of leadership and responsibility in the community.
True to our founding aim to create leaders of communities, our members indeed represent the future of Torah Jewry
