Director of The Aish Scholars Kollel (ASK )
Rabbi Shneur Feldman claims to know the secret to Jewish success: an unbridled passion for intense Torah study. Raised in Lakewood, NJ, just doors away from America's largest Yeshiva, Rabbi Shneur believes that it is every Jew's birthright to connect to the Torah. Positive energy is his trademark, and he has brought that to summer camps and Jewish children's programming across the country. His greatest accomplishment is mastering the art of bedtime, so that he can have his six lively children settled in bed in time for him to get to the Aish Scholars Kollel by 8:30pm every evening.
Where to meet Shneuer:
Sunday, Monday Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights from 8:30-11pm at Aish
