​​​​​​​ The torah kollel kehilla & you...

In Elul of 5770 (August 2010) Mosdos Ahavas Yehonoson was establishined to meet the needs of the English speaking b'nei chutz la'aretz living in Eretz Yisroel. A few years later, we opened our own beis medrash and were transfformed into the Torah Kollel Kehilla to serve the larger community in a myriad of ways.  Located in Ramat Beit Shemesh, the kollel enjoys the quiet surroundings of a true makom Torah, made up of a predominant majority of English speaking b'nei Torah, both avreichim and ba'alei batim.

For much of European Jewry, the go-to authoritative halachic work was the Chayei Adam.  In fact, it is known that the Chofetz Chaim learned the Chayei Adam with the masses between mincha and maariv, and many of its rulings were incorporated into the Mishna Berura.


Until now, no English translation of the Chayei Adam has been published.


In this monumental work, Rabbi Dovid Lewin not only translates this classic work, but his elaborate notes give the reader an appreciation of the background of the Chayei Adam's teachings in addition to relevant sources for greater understanding - citing and incorporating the rulings of contemporary poskim as well.


To date, only part of the Chayei Adam has been published (the final sections which deal with the day of Elul, Rosh Hashana, Succos, Chanuka, and Purim).  To find out how to get your copy or how to become a partner in this monumental work, please email us at info@torahkollel.com.


The Rosh Kollel

Mosdos Ahavas Yehonoson is under the leadership of HaRav Dovid Lewin shlit"a who is the author of several seforim in halacha & hashkafa.  Originally from Toronto, Canada, the Rosh Kollel studied in the famous Telshe Yeshiva in Cleveland, Ohio where he received semicha. In 2001, Rabbi Lewin and his family made aliyah to Ramat Beit Shemesh, where he continues to pursue his lifelong passion of teaching Torah.  As Rosh Kollel and Rav of the Kehilla, he utilizes his breadth of knowledge and pedagogic skills to guide and mold the young kollel scholars and lead the greater kehilla.


The Kehilla

Our kehilla is comprised of people from all walks of life and age groups. Many have spent years searching for a place where they feel they belong and are now proud to call Mosdos Ahavas Yehonoson "home".  

Whether it's a regular Shabbos, Yomim Noraim, or a simchas Beis HaShoeiva, Ahavas Yehonoson give more than a sense of friendship. It's a growing family.

Join us for Shabbos morning davening (8:15) followed by the "kol ha'ne'arim" 15 minute learning seder, and a hot kiddush!
