Kollel: Center for Jewish Studies
The key to success in any endeavor is knowledge. Judaism is no different. The pathway to a Jewish life that is stimulating, relevant, enjoyable and, most importantly, transferable to the next generation, is the aquisition of Jewish wisdom.
The Kollel is committed to making this knowledge available to all Jews regardless of age, background, affiliation or level of observance. We strive to provide sincere and open forums for the dissemination of genuine Torah wisdom in a warm, friendly and non judgmental atmosphere.
Find out more about our classes and activities, to help you attain that wisdom, here, on our website. Please do not hesitate to contact the office to arrange a discussion group, breakfast seminar or lunch and learn in your home, office or synagogue.
All classes, unless otherwise specified, are given in our spacious and welcoming center at 671 East Ave just over the Providence/ Pawtucket line. For directions to our study center please click here .
