Shivti is a brand new, 3-week Sunday morning program, for men and boys, K-3rd grade. Come to the Kollel for these three Sunday mornings and study a topic related to Chanukah. Men will join a group led by Kollel Rabbis, and boys will enjoy a special presentation on the lower level each week.
 
Schedule: November 20 & December 4 & 11
8:00 a.m.  Shacharis
8:45 a.m.  A gourmet breakfast with bagels, pancakes, omelets, iced coffee and a flavored brewed coffee bar.
Men: 9:20 a.m.-10:20 -  Chavrusah and Group Learning in Beis Medrash
(based on the renowned Shivti curriculum )
Boys: 9:20 - 10:20 a.m. -  Special presentation on the Lower Level followed by raffle drawings.

All boys who attend all 3 programs will receive a special prize. For more information on this program please contact Rabbi Zeffren at   yoelz@verizon.net.
