Kollel Leadership

Rabbi Doniel Danishefsky

Rabbi Danishevsky’s in-depth Talmudic training began at Yeshiva Torah Temimah in Brooklyn, after which he studied at the prestigious Brisk Yeshiva in Yerushalayim. He then continued his studies at Beth Medrash Govoha, where he first settled with his wife Sima (nee Lansky) of Baltimore Maryland. The Danishevskys relocated to Los Angeles in 1995, when Rabbi Danishevsky joined the Lakewood Kollel in Hancock Park. During his tenure at the Hancock Park Kollel, Rabbi Danishevsky established himself as an outstanding Talmud Chacham with unusual pedagogic and mentoring skills. His reputation has been a catalyst for new Avreichim being attracted to Merkaz Hatorah Kollel. It is under his tutelage that the Beis Medrash program has been so successful. Mrs. Danishevsky currently serves as a Jewish history teacher at the local Bais Yaakov School. R’ Danishevsky’s shiurim, both for the Kollel avreichim and for the general public are very well received. We are very grateful for his contribution to the leadership of the Kollel.
