The Jerusalem Kollel inspires and trains Kollel couples to assume positions of leadership in Jewish communities worldwide. Through our 3 year intensive program we build alumni of the highest calibre, dedicated to leading, teaching and strengthening Klal Yisroel.

Our couples are known for their energy and desire to make a difference. We have been staffing most major Kiruv organizations for the past 15 years, and we are the first place they turn to when they need rabbis and leaders.

Our Rosh Kollel

Rav Yitzchak Berkovits

R'Berkovits is recognized world-wide as a prominent posek and ba'al eitzah. Through his varied roles in the kiruv world, he has become a sought after speaker and his advice on complex community matters is valued by Rabbonim across the globe.

R'Berkovits saw the untapped potential of countless yeshivaleit to make huge differences in Klal Yisrael. This was the inspiration behind the creation of the Jerusalem Kollel – a place to transform bnei Torah into leaders who will share their love for Torah and Hashem with our fellow Jews.

A Glimpse Into
The Program

What we do:

We have an intensive 3 year program, with the main focus on learning hilchos Shabbos, Issur v'heter and Niddah. This is facilitated by daily shiurim from R'Berkovits and regular tests.

We gather a hugely diverse group of avreichim, all united by their common goal of helping Klal Yisrael, each according to his own strengths. Together, they focus on the value of the individual and learn to appreciate perspectives from other cultures and backgrounds.

The program includes:

  • Semicha Program
  • Mashgiach Training Course
  • Kehilla Internships
  • Counselling Training
  • Public Speaking Courses

The Women's Program‚Äč

Inspire a Jewish woman and you automatically influence her family and community. That's why each woman in our program goes through a parallel acceptance process with her husband, to be evaluated for her potential leadership abilities and the example she sets as a Jewish woman. Our program empowers each woman to confidently teach and guide the women of Klal Yisrael.

Our alumni are found in every major kiruv & Rabbinic organization, including:
