Community Kollel -> Rabbanus | Portland

Rabbi Yekusiel Brodkin started his kiruv activities in 2003 in the outreach kollel in Houston Texas, where he was involved in outreach with adults through teaching and through small, group-learning sessions.

In 2005 he became rabbi of the Kesser Yisrael congregation in Portland, Oregon. Since his arrival, Rabbi Brodkin has instituted three regular minyanim daily, and the community now also has an eiruv. His work has resulted in the strengthening of Jewish life in Portland, with a significant number of families becoming shomer shabbos and others sending their children off to yeshiva.

Rabbi Brodkin and his wife founded Maayan Torah Day School with the long-term goal of establishing a day school that offers local Jewish families cutting-edge education with excellence in both Torah and secular studies.
