Kollel

The translation of “Kollel” is “including”.
What  does the word Kollel have with a 
place where married Yungerleit sit and learn? 

In the olden days, to be buried in Eretz Yisroel one 
had to make Aliya while  still alive. It  was not practical 
to ship dead bodies from Europe to Eretz Yisroel. 

Some elderly people after retirement took their 
life savings* and made Aliya  so they will die and be 
buried in E. Yisroel. 
While waiting for the Malach Hamo’ves they sat in 
the Bais Hamidrash. The Talmidei Chachamim  learned 
all day long. The Amei Ha’aretz  learned Ayn Yakov,
Mishnayos and said Tehillim.

This was the only place in the world where they had 
organized masses of men sitting and learning all day 
long. (pre- Kollel of today)
