HaRav Nesanel Kostelitz  Shlita

Rosh Kollel


Rav Nesanel Kostelitz grew up in Bnei Brak, Israel, and was a student of Rav Shmuel Wozner.  Rabbi Kostelitz served as a rabbi in Australia before coming to Baltimore to serve as Rav of Machzikei Torah on Biltmore Avenue, a few blocks from the Kollel.  


Rav Kostelitz shares his warmth, wisdom and scholarship freely with everyone who walks into the Kollel.  His many tallents include: talmudic sholar, popular speaker, a mohel and a posek.


Rabbi Mordechai Bamberger



Rabbi Bamberger has been the driving force behind the Kollel since its inception in March 2000.  In May 2015 he retired from the Social Security Administration to devote himself full time to realizing his vision of a Kollel that serves all Jews who have a thirst for knowledge, especially teens and those who did not have the benefit of a Jewish education.


Rabbi Bamberger is a native of Baltimore and a talmid of Ner Yisroel and Philadelphia yeshivos.
