What is Merkaz Chomesh?

The world is thirsty for the teachings of Chassidus. People are searching to learn, to grow and to connect to Toras HaBa'al Shem Tov like never before. Merkaz Chomesh gives people the tools to find what they are looking for.

In more than 50 Kollels worldwide, thousands of people — who otherwise would have no access to the teachings of Chassidus — gather for an hour and a half each night to learn Chassidus from renowned teachers and Mashpiim. Students are tested on what they’ve learned and receive a stipend for participating.

Aside for the regular daily classes, these Kollels serve as spiritual outposts: A destination for seeking souls who come to quench their thirst with the teachings of Chassidus.

Yeshayahu prophesied that in the times of Moshiach “ומלאה הארץ דעה את ה' כמים לים מכסים'.” Merkaz Chomesh is preparing the world for that reality.
