ABOUT KTM

​MISSION AND HISTORY

Kollel Torah MiTzion Montreal is an educational centre with a special atmosphere where all Jews can feel comfortable to pursue Jewish learning at their own pace. KTM offers special lectures, programs, classes and study partners for men, women and students of all ages and from all Jewish backgrounds. Kollel Torah MiTzion recognizes the primacy of Torah study to Jewish life both as Torah Lishma (for its own sake) and Midrash U’maaseh (study for the sake of doing). It views the unity of the Jewish people, the responsibility of one Jew for another, and the centrality of the land of Israel as fundamental components of Jewish observance and Jewish continuity.

The KTM Women’s Beit Midrash offers weekly classes for women of all ages and special lecture series, as well as chavrutot (partner learning)

The Kollel is housed in the Lieberman Beit Midrash of Hebrew Academy and the sounds of Torah learning reverberate day and evening as students and adults explore the sources that have sustained us for generations and have preserved our heritage.

The Faculty

The core staff of Kollel Torah MiTzion Montreal are graduates of Hesder Yeshivot in Israel, where advanced Jewish study is combined with military service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). As teachers at the Kollel, in local day schools and on university and CEGEP campuses, these carefully selected young men and couples serve as mentors and role models for their students demonstrating how Torah principles and learning can become a part of daily life.

How It All Began

Torah MiTzion is a unique initiative designed to aid Jewish communities throughout the world grapple with the problems of assimilation and disunity, strengthen its Jewish young leadership and to bridge the gap between the Diaspora and the State of Israel.

The program, with its head office in Jerusalem, establishes Kollelim (centres of Jewish learning and outreach), which emphasizes the eternal connection between the State of Israel and the Diaspora and between Torah study and Israel. The first Torah MiTzion programs were set up in Cleveland, Ohio and Cape Town, South Africa in 1994. The success of the pilot projects have led to the establishments of such study centres in 28 cities around the world. KTM is proud to be part of this network.
