About Rabbi Dr. Zev Eleff
Rabbi Dr. Zev Eleff was appointed Chief Academic Officer of HTC and Dean of HTC’s Beis Midrash and College in 2015. He was ordained at Yeshiva University, earned his Ph.D. in the field of American Jewish history from Brandeis University, and received a master’s in history and education from Teacher’s College at Columbia University. Dr. Eleff is the author and editor of six books and more than 30 scholarly articles, published in both English and Hebrew. He was most recently an instructor in the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis. Dr. Eleff was named the 2015 recipient of the Salo Wittmayer Baron Dissertation Award in Jewish Studies by Arizona State University. The honor is given every three years to the best dissertation in the field of Jewish History and Culture in the Americas. Dr. Eleff brings vision and enthusiasm to HTC and we look forward to the positive impact he will have on HTC’s academic offerings. We are excited to present our new Chief Academic Officer as the featured speaker at this year’s Melave Malka.
About the Bellows Kollel
The members of the Bellows Kollel are involved in a myriad of activities in and around the Yeshiva. Led by Rabbi Yirmiyahu Neuman, they are contributing to the Kol Torah which can be heard in the Yeshiva's Beis Midrash and are developing a clearer understanding of what it means to be “lilmod u’lelamaid” — to learn and to teach - preparing themselves to be the master teachers of tomorrow. The Kollel also contributes to the writing and dis¬tribution of Likutei Peshatim and to the Yeshiva's Torah Journal, Or Shmuel.
In addition to their Torah studies, several Kollel members deliver shiurim through¬out the community. With our new initiatives, they will be even more involved with our community’s shuls, so that the wisdom they have gained within our walls will be shared with others. Several members of the Kollel also perform jobs and services for the Yeshiva itself in both faculty and administrative roles.
Our Kollel members live on the Yeshiva campus. This allows them to be involved in a number of ways with the dorming students. During the week, the Kollel is very involved with these students during night seder, and on Shabbos there are those that deliver shiurim. Furthermore, the Kollel families regularly host students for meals on Shabbos, providing a family-style Shabbos meal environment.
Those who have graduated from our Kollel program continue to make a significant, positive impact in their communities.
