Dayan Yonasan Abraham

President

Dayan Abraham, our spiritual guide, was born in London, and studied in Gateshead and Lakewood (N.J.) Yeshivas. He moved to Australia in 1985 where he joined the Lakewood Satellite Kollel in Melbourne. In 1995 he became Rav of the Caulfield Hebrew Congregation, and two years later was appointed a member of the Melbourne Beth Din. The Dayan joined the London Beth Din in 2001. Since then he has been involved in numerous communal organisations.

When the idea of a Kollel in Leeds was first thought of, Dayan Abraham enthusiastically came on board. We derive great benefit from his wise counsel, and it is truly a privilege to have someone of his stature so strongly involved.

In addition to his manifold activities as a Dayan in London, he is much sought after internationally as a public speaker.

Rabbi Ahron Kramer

Dean

Rabbi Ahron Kramer was born and grew up in Philadelphia. He attended Yeshivas Kol Torah in Yerushalayim for several years, attending the shiurim (lectures) of the highly acclaimed halachic authority Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach.

After moving to Manchester in 2001, Rabbi Kramer studied at Kollel Heichal Hatorah for high calibre scholars. He received his Semicha in the summer of 2013 with ordination from noted Rabbonim.

It is to Rabbi Kramer that this institution owes its existence. The concept was his, and without his resilience and fortitude, we would never have what there is today.

Rabbi Noson Krausz

Senior Scholar

Rabbi Noson Krausz who was born in Manchester, studied in the Gateshead Yeshiva, as well as the famous Ponevezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak.

In 2004 he moved back to Manchester, and joined the prestigious Heichal HaTorah Kollel, where he completed an intense Semicha course and was ordained by several prestigious Rabbonim in Israel.

His leadership of the internal Kollel studies generates an extremely high standard.
