This year's guest speaker:
Rabbi Moshe Meir Weiss- Rav Agudas Yisroel of Staten Island

HaRav Moshe Meir Weiss, Rav of Agudas Yisroel of Staten Island for the last 33 years, was privileged to be a close musmach and student of Harav Moshe Feinstein, zt"l for over a decade. Rabbi Weiss is a very familiar name in the Orthodox media and has inspired thousands of people around the world through his dynamic shiurim, radio shows, teleconferences and magazine articles since the 1980's. He delivers two Daf Yomi shiurim daily and has over 5000 archived shiurim hosted on the Kol Haloshon global teleconferencing system. Rabbi Weiss packs his day with teaching Torah, reaching men, women and children in New York and around the globe.
Partnership Sefer Torah Campaign

The Community Partnership Sefer Torah project provides the opportunity for our friends and neighbors to fulfill the commandment for each Jew to write a Torah in its literal sense. This Sefer Torah will be the very first commissioned and owned by the Kollel. We welcome you to partner in the project's multi-tiered dedication opportunities which offer an everlasting share in this paramount mitzvah of perpetuating the Torah for eternity. For more information on how you can participate, click on the graphic, visit or feel free to call the Kollel office at 610-668-9557 for more information.
