The Emergence of the Community Kollel: A New Model for Addressing Assimilation

By Adam S Ferziger

Rappaport Center for Assimilation Research and Strengthening Jewish Vitality, 2006

This article discusses the community kollel, an institution geared towards Jewish study, as a modern enterprise that has transformed into an informal educational institution that addresses the spiritual and intellectual interests of young Jews. This "new" institution is meant to engage individuals who are currently involved in such study on a different level, as well as a new method that attempts to attract those with a limited connection to Judaism into a renewed commitment to Jewish life.
