Rabbi Shmuel Hammond

Rabbi Shmuel Hammond, a Posek from Manchester will be teaching the halachic sections of the chaburah.  Rabbi Hammond learned in Yeshivas Heichal HaTorah in Yerushalayim under HoRav Zvi Kushelevsky shlita. Upon moving back to England, he learned in the Manchester Montefiore Kollel for some 10 years covering Hilchos Shabbos and many aspects of Yoreh Deiah in depth. He received semicha and heter horo’oh from Dayan O. Y. Westheim zt”l.   Following a period of shimush in psak halacha with Dayan Westheim, Rabbi Hammond launched a service where people can send sheilos and receive a response via text. The Dayan was very supportive of this service which currently answers hundreds of sheilos monthly.

Rabbi Shmuel Tepper

Rabbi Shmuel Tepper, will be a Maggid Shiur in the Yeshivah. After completing his Psychology Degree at McGill University, the Montreal native spent the next seven years learning in Yeshivas and Kolellim in Yerushalayim. (Machon Shlomo, Ateres Yisroel and Medrash Shmuel). Following a two year leadership training program under the auspices of Rav Reuven Leuchter, the Teppers moved to Manchester England. While there he qualified as a teacher (QTS) and received Semicha from HaRav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg ZTL. Rabbi Tepper then spent the next 10 years learning and teaching in the Whitefield Kollel and at the same time began his teaching career in Broughton Jewish Primary School. Much of his time over the last 19 years has been dedicated to teaching beginner Gemara skills to children, teens and adults of all ages.

Rabbi Yehoshua Jacobson

Rabbi Yehoshua Jacobson will be leading an interactive Gemorah shiur for the
chaburah and will be striving to encourage the participants to develop their own critical
learning skills to last them a lifetime. For nearly 30 years he has been in full time learning in
Yeshivos and Kollelim of Yerushaliyim and Manchester. Additionally, he has published two
Seforim and lectured in many forums to adults. He has taught adults several evenings a
week in Partners in Torah based in Hale, England where he has dozens of students. He
considers HaRov Naftali Kaplan shlita and HaRov Y.C. Horowitz shlita to be his principal
Rabbeiyim, but has close ties with many of the Robbonim of Manchester with whom he
speaks to almost daily. He is originally from near Washington D.C., where incidentally, he
also completed his degree at Georgetown University before moving to Yerushalyim.

 

OUR STUDENT BODY:

Both married and single are welcome to join the chaburah

As the intention of Yeshivas Kabtzeinu Yachad is to serve as a cohesive chaburah, the ideal talmid would be one who is interested in committing to a one year (40 weeks) 3x a week evening program.

Individual meetings between each student and Rabbi Canter will precede the group chaburas in order to get to know each talmid individually as well as to assess their experience in Gemara study. Several groups may be formed to facilitate a cohesive group level.
