Kollel's Beis Medrash a Great Resource 

to Boys Back from Yeshiva

The Kollel Beis Medrash is a warm and inviting environment for all who seek serious  Torah learning. This week, with many boys back from Yeshivah for a summer break, the Kollel has been infused with extra sounds of learning as new chavrusa's were formed.

The Kollel will be providing breakfast and danishes, coffee and refreshments for all those who wish to learn in the Beis Medrash. Spread the word!

Need a chavrusa? Just let us know and we'll be glad to help you out. Please contact Rabbi Zeffren at or 610-507-3906. In addition, feel free to take advantage of the First Seder Program's shiurim. For more details, see

Business Ethics # 7:  
Rabbi Biberfeld leads a discussion group on interesting questions relating to business ethics and their halachic ramfications. This lively interactive class places thought provoking, professional, ethical dilemmas within the framework of halachic discussion. Feel free to come and enjoy! 


Shabbos afternoon at 5:15 at the Kollel, followed by Mincha at 6:00.


Topic:    The Babysitter


You hired a Jewish girl from the community to babysit without asking how much she charges. When you return home you ask, "how much do you charge?" She says, "most people pay between $8.00 and $12.00 an hour."

How much do you have to pay: $8.00, $10.00, or $12.00?
