About Rabbi Kaplan
Rabbi Dovid Kaplan, originally from Chicago, attended Fasman Yeshiva High School, graduating in 1976. His grandfather, Rav Hertzl Kaplan and his great uncle, Rav Mendel Kaplan were beloved Roshei Yeshiva at Hebrew Theological College. Rabbi Kaplan is Mashgiach at Yeshivas Beis Yisroel and a senior lecturer at Ohr Somayach in Yerushalayim. He has authored ten books on the topic of Jewish Outreach and has lectured around the globe. His modern, streetwise approach to clarifying Jewish issues sprinkled with dry wit and many real-life stories, has been inspiring Jews worldwide for many years.
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 Neu¬man, 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.
