The Dr. David E Epstein z"l Memorial Lecture.
Dr. David Epstein, was one of the Kollel’s founders and served as President of its Board of Directors from 2002–2004. His leadership was instrumental in nurturing the Kollel from a fledgling organization into the community bastion of Torah learning that it is today. Dr. Epstein was a consummate physician, a model builder of Torah and community, and above all, a loving husband, father and son. In recognition of his integral role in the Kollel's history, the Annual Lecture is named in his memory. We are confident that it will provide an additional source of merit for his neshama for many years to come.
