SCHOLARS-IN-RESIDENCE

Thanks to the hard work of the Education Chair, Kedma has many scholars-in-residence every semester. Whether they come for only an afternoon or they stay for Shabbat, they're a mainstay of the Kedma experience. See here for a list of the 150+ different scholars we've had since 2007!

LONDON KOLLEL

The London Kollel (sponsored by Rebbetzin London in memory of Rabbi Yechiel London zt"l) is a college learning program where students commit to learn a certain number of hours a week in exchange for monetary and spiritual schar. The whole kollel learns together once a week, and it's a great way to get involved!

GEMARA BEKIUT

Kedma has student-led Amud Yomi and Daf Yomi groups. During the semester we would take turns preparing and giving the daf to each other. When corona and summer break came, we would take turns writing summaries for the daf for each other. And since many of us use his shiur to prepare, we decided to sponsor Shabbat Daf 100 of Rav Aryeh Lebowitz's shiur! Join our Daf Yomi WhatsApp group here, and our Amud Yomi WhatsApp group here!
