The mission of the Yeshiva University Torah Mitzion Kollel of Chicago is to enrich and engage the greater Chicago Jewish community with inspired Torah living and learning. The Kollel is an open community of learning that celebrates three core values: the primacy of Torah, the importance of positive interaction with general society and culture and the religious significance of the State of Israel.
The Kollel’s center of learning is its Beit Midrash, where fellows spend their day engaged in intensive study of Talmud, Halacha and Jewish thought. Our Torah shines throughout Chicago; it is a strategic asset to our community, strengthening shuls and schools with diverse Torah programming. Our dynamic, talented team of scholars offers a learning portfolio unique in its scope and breadth by partnering with local institutions to provide one–on–one learning opportunities, inspiring youth and teen programs, women’s initiatives, online resources and access to renowned Torah personalities.
The Kollel is comprised of eight families from Israel and across America, all of whom share a passion for inspired Jewish living and learning. Since the Kollel’s founding in 2008, several alumni have taken community positions in rabbinic and lay leadership capacities in Chicago.
