Kollel Ateres Mordechai was instituted to bring about the materialization of Rabbi Gifter’s fervent wish and desire—that his Torah would be made available to a wider public.

Rav Mordechai Gifter was one of the leading people that brought Torah learning to America. His phenomenal impact is remarkable largely because he was born in the United States. 

The singular mission of Kollel Ateres Mordechai is to spread Rav Gifter's Torah that has affected so many people and will, B"H, have a powerful effect on you as you delve into his teachings and writings. 

Kollel Ateres Mordechai, an outgrowth of Telshe Yeshiva, was founded in 2005, with the mission to foster the ideals of authentic Torah Judaism by scholarship, community outreach and Jewish education. In addition, Kollel Ateres Mordechai publishes and disseminates the Torah-writings and speeches of the Telshe Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Mordechai Gifter. In his ethical will, Rabbi Gifter charged his family and students to make every effort to publish his Torah novella, Shiurim (Talmudic lectures), Shiurei Daas (lectures in Philosophy and Ethics) and correspondence, a preponderant majority which were formulated in his close to fifty year stint as the Telshe Rosh Yeshiva, so that they would be available to a wider public. Kollel Ateres Mordechai was instituted to bring about the materialization of Rabbi Gifter’s fervent wish and desire. The scholars involved in the editing of the voluminous material have had personal exposure to Rav Gifter, and are familiar with his body of work and its style. 

Kollel Ateres Mordechai has completed and published: Nesivos Mordechai on tractate Gittin, Kiddushin, Yevomos, and Bava Metzia volume I. No effort has been spared in locating the source-references, cross-referencing this work with Rav Gifter’s other works, and presenting the material in a user-friendly manner and an aesthetically pleasing format. We invite you to sign up as an Exclusive Member to access digital versions of these enlightening seforim at no cost to you.

We are now going ahead with our next project of Nesivos Mordechai on Tractate Bava Metzia volume II. It is still possible to make a donation to enable this publication and make a dedication of your choice. 

The work of Kollel Ateres Mordechai benefits the world because it generates a heightened awareness and consciousness of Rav Gifter’s unique blend of brilliance, piety, sincerity, and integrity among the public.
