The A is expanding its rabbinical family.
A representative of Chabad of Georgia is coming to Brooklyn, NY, in 2 weeks to meet young Chabad couples interested in enrolling in the Atlanta Dayanus Institute.
The 3-year program at Chabad was established 3 years ago, with 2 young Chabad rabbis engaging in in-depth study of of the code of Jewish law (Choshen Mishpat/Even Haezer) and teaching Torah within the community.
To date, Rabbis Sender Lustig and Avi Shlomo earned a Yadin Yadin advanced rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Av Beis Din of the Chicago Rabbinical Council and Rabbi Dovid Schochet, President of the Vaad Harobonim in Toronto.
“We are looking to grow the kollel to 4 new couples to build upon the phenomenal success that Rabbis Lustig and Shlomo and their families brought to the community,” says Rabbi Yossi New, Head Shliach of Georgia.
Rabbi Shlomo, who was also the Adult Education coordinator at Chabad/Beth Tefillah in Atlanta, said “the opportunity to learn every day combined with giving shiurim and coordinating programs for the community, has been very rewarding.”
Besides for learning every day, the new members of the kollel will have the opportunity to be involved in adult education and teaching in the Chabad Day School.
“It has been a great opportunity to learn Halacha L’Maase within the realities of a Shlichus community as it really helped direct our learning,” said Rabbi Lustig.
COLlive.com has learned that Chabad of Georgia is also looking to expand its presence in the downtown/midtown and southern suburbs of Atlanta.
“Some of the new kollel couples will be afforded the opportunity to learn part time and establish a Chabad presence in these new areas,” said Rabbi Isser New, associate director of Chabad of GA.
Interviews with Rabbi Isser New to join the kollel will be conducted in New York on Thursday, February 19. For more information, email [email protected]
