STAFF MEMBERS
It is hard to believe that we began with our first Shmuz one year ago in Brooklyn with 12 guys attending. A lot has happened in that year, and Boruch HASHEM, as an organization we have made tremendous progress. We now have Tiferes Bnei Torah branches operating in three locations: Brooklyn, Monsey and the latest addition: Kew Gardens Hills, led by Zev Davidowitz. Our objective is to create an environment that helps Bnei Torah grow. Aside from the Social elements of Tiferes Bnei Torah, we have put much effort into effective Shiurim and programs -- in addition to the Shmuz being said in each location, we now have assorted shiurim for each branch.
Here is listing of some of what has been put into place so far:
Kollel Boker each morning in Monsey
Practical Holocha program each morning in Kew Gardens Hills
Iyun Chaburah once a week in Monsey
Gemerah shiur twice a week in Kew Gardens Hills
Rabbi Shmuel Waldman's shiur Monday nights in Brooklyn
Iyun Shiur twice a week in Kew Gardens Hills
Women shiur in Monsey and Kew Gardens Hills
Torah Retreat June 11-14
 
Boruch HASHEM it seems that our objective of creating "Yeshiva programs for working people" is beginning to come to fruition!
Besides our national board and local boards here are some of the people that help make Tiferes Bnei Torah happen:
