Denver Community Kollel’s new southeast center

Denver Community Kollel’s new southeast center

EDUCATION & CULTURE

WHEN the Denver Community Kollel began more than 16 years ago, its bais medrash (study hall) was located on Denver’s West Side.

Rabbi Yaakov Meyer was then building a community in Southeast Denve, and he invited the Kollel to hold a weekly Wednesday night Torah study session at his facility in the Denver Tech Center area.

But people notice him. “Hey,” they whisper, “isn’t that Howie Movshovitz?” Movshovitz’s portfolio overflows like an oversized container of hot buttered popcorn.

Homeschooling: Learning, an organic, flowing process

Homeschooling: Learning, an organic, flowing processA FEW years back, when Nachshon and Shoshana Zohari made their first tentative steps to educate their children by themselves, they weren’t entirely sure how to go about it. They had researched the practice known as “homeschooling,” but there were still a number of unanswered questions. After all, both parents had themselves been educated in standard classrooms in everyday schools. “We didn’t have any other model,” says Shoshana, a stay-at-home mom who considers being her kids’ pr...
