The CBS Somerton Community Kollel is dedicated to building our community, so we strive to help wherever we can.

We bring Torah to life in our daily learning and classes for the community through engaging programs.

Our Rosh Kollel, Rabbi Riber, gives a shiur on the Torah portion each week along with Rabbi Aronzon’s famous chulent!

Looking for a chance to give? Here are some options for ways to sponsor a program.

We run programming for all ages in a warm and friendly atmosphere that bring all kinds of people into the CBS Community Center.
