About Kollel Eitz Pri

Eitz Pri is no standard afternoon kollel…it’s an exciting blend of deep learning and personal development, through mussar and avoda. Our approach to Torah growth is both innovative and totally authentic.

Learn halacha be’iyun – from ‘pasuk to posek’ so clearly that you can teach the trickiest of halachos to others.

And dive into mussar seforim to discover deep insights into yourself and your life’s mission.

Ever dreamt of teaching Gemara with real confidence or exploring mussar in a way that leaves you feeling empowered to make real changes, improving your life daily? That’s exactly what Kollel Eitz Pri is all about.

Our program

Weekly Shiur from
R' Shmuel Weiner

Rabbi Shmuel Weiner שליט"א - of ZNT, Toras Moshe and Aderes Hatorah - gives an engaging and relevant weekly halacha shiur. He also answers shaylos from current avreichim and graduates working around the world.

Monthly Stipend

A significant monthly stipend is available, with different payment structures in place. Monthly datot payments are also organized for avreichim.

Gemora lehalocha clarity

The kollel learns halacha be'iyun, working thoroughly all the way 'from pasuk to posek', with a really strong emphasis on comprehensive understanding at every stage of that process. There is also a stress on taking responsibility for remembering the material learned and being able to teach it over to others.

Binyan Haodom

Under Rabbi Segal's daily guidance, mussar comes to life in an authentic and real way. The avreichim find new paths and enthusiasm in avodas Hashem and become empowered to share that with other people.

Public speaking training

The kollel provides personal training for public speaking, which includes opportunities to practice with guided observation and detailed feedback.

Counselling & Life Coaching Training

Regular classes focus on life skills training, including learning the techniques of coaching.

Practical kiruv experience

Within the framework of the kollel, there are opportunities for significant hands-on kiruv experience, including running trips and learning one-on-one with students.

Weekly womens shiur

The weekly women's shiur aligns the couple's hashkafic development. This creates a dynamic of a family growing together, ready to go out and change Klal Yisrael.
