Dear Family and Friends

Iyh this will be Leeds Kollel's 4th Annual 'Yom HaShas', gathering in avid learners & supporters from up and down the country to a) perform the epic Kiddush Hashem that is to learn Torah 6 hours straight in a packed Bet Midrash, in doing so collectively finishing Shas and to b) raise funds for a special and vital communal educational institution.

Since May/Iyar 2014, Leeds Kollel has inspired the community with adult programming( e.g. Torah lectures, one-to-one learning for both Men and Women), youth programming (e.g. 'DBLA' events, Shabbaton with visiting Yeshiva from Gateshead), Shabbatonim for the community and so much more. They are a group of approachable and knowledgeable members, who impact on both individual and collective levels; together with their wives. It is with no doubt that they have enriched the community with a passion for learning; not previously seen in the Kehilla for a very long time - and they continue to do this almost 6 years since their inception.

So what next?

Now, the Kollel are keen to expand operations - doing so by adding 5 new members & bringing over prestigious speakers to the community, in addition to continue with their current programmes and events and to support their present members with further training.

To do this, the Kollel needs funds. And I'm writing this Megillah for 2 reasons:

1) To let you know that a Chevruta (a learning partner) and I will be learning 10 of these aforementioned 'Daf Yomis' at the Leeds Yom HaShas (Feb 9th) (Rosh Hashana 12a to Rosh Hashana 22b let's gooo)2) To ask you to support me/Leeds Kollel in this endevour please! Any contribution would mean the world!!
