50k Kollel Challenge accepted! Are you in?

4 generous matchers challenged us to raise $25,000 by 9pm Central Time on Wednesday night, and they'll match every dollar for a total of 50k! 

All funds raised will benefit the Minneapolis Community Kollel, one of the nation's premier Torah centers. mnkollel.org

The Kollel is a group of 15 Rabbis and their families whose lives revolve entirely around learning and teaching about Judaism. Each Rabbi is a Torah scholar who is continuously learning from our Jewish texts, our sages and from more modern commentators. The Kollel is located at 2930 Inglewood Avenue in St. Louis Park with the most comprehensive Judaic library in Minnesota.

Our mission is to unlock and explain the wondrous beauty and wisdom of Judaism to anyone in our community who wants to learn regardless of their level of observance or synagogue affiliation. Our studies range from doctorate-level Talmudic analysis to life-lessons relevant to all. We study to gain wisdom and knowledge and to learn how to become better sons & daughters, mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, leaders, workers and friends. How to gain more meaning and fulfillment in our lives. How to be happier and better people!

For more information about us and our programs please visit us at mnkollel.org

The Minneapolis Community Kollel is a registered 501(c)3 organization Tax I.D. #41-1903600
