Kollel Torah Temimah was started in Elul 5759 by Rav Mordechai Linzer. The kollel is made up of outstanding avreichim and helps them reach new heights in their learning, engendering their transformation into true talmidei chachamim.
The uniqueness of the kollel lies in its derech ha’limud. The kollel learns masechtos from cover to cover, b'iyun, and at a healthy pace. In general, learning b'iyun means learning very slowly, but the Rosh Kollel has found a way to learn b'iyun while covering ground, so that the pace is not an impediment to iyun, but rather enhances it. Learning the sugyos with greater breadth instead of focusing on the small picture changes the whole learning experience.
Rav Linzer is a talmid of HaGaon Rav Asher Arielli, shlit”a, who is the source of this derech ha’limud, and Rav Linzer has adapted this derech to a kollel setting. Rav Linzer has also published five sefarim based on this method of learning, which have been highly praised by well-known roshei yeshiva and talmidei chachamim.
In the kollel, afternoon seder continues where morning seder left off. This fosters a great attachment to the material covered and greatly enhances the understanding of the sugya. The sedarim of the kollel are also longer than the norm to further create a stronger connection to the sugya.
Chazara is the cornerstone of the kollel, as this is the one and only way to really know the masechta. Besides for weekly and monthly review, the kollel does an extra chazara on the masechta as a whole to put all the pieces together.
The Rosh Kollel also works with the avreichim individually to further their learning and help develop their own individual derech ha’limud. The avreichim also say chaburos to grow in their individual abilities of teaching Torah. Avreichim in Torah Temimah attest that they are learning better than ever before.
Our goal is to produce roshei yeshiva and maggidei shiur for the next generation who are true talmidei chachamim.
Some of the avreichim have already taken the message of the kollel to heart by starting a virtual Yarchei Kallah for those off from work during the coronavirus epidemic. This learning program was joined by hundreds and now continues in a different format, covering one small sugya per week with with short daily shiurim.
Avreichim receive a stipend of $1,000 a month, slightly more than the typical stipend. This is intended to cover expenses like extra child care, so that the avreichim are able to more fully invest themselves in their learning. The kollel currently has twelve avreichim, with plans to grow as time goes on.
