Earn merits before the Yomim Noraim towards being inscribed for a happy sweet new year by supporting the Kollel's ongoing Torah study, shiurim and programs for men and women of all ages in our community. 
A Memorial Scroll will be displayed over the High Holidays on our digital donor board located in our front lobby.   For a donation of $100, you can memorialize a loved one on these holy days. 

For more information or to sign up, please visit our  Memorial Scroll Webpage   or contact Rabbi Zeffren at  or call the Kollel office at 610-668-9557.

Tzedaka: Yom Tov Fund

As in the past, we will be accepting donations for Tzedaka to be distributed through Philadelphia Community Kollel Discretionary Fund to families that we know personally are struggling to make Yom tov in Philadelphia and beyond. Checks can be made to Philadelphia Community Kollel or you can donate online here . Make sure to write " Yom Tov Fund" in the subject line.
May your generosity in helping these needy families be a zechus for you and yours this Rosh Hashanah and for you to enjoy your Yom Tov with joy and good health!
Wishing you a Kesiva v'chasima tova!
