R' Ezra Klein

Founder

Over ten years ago, we had a dream.  We would create a movement that would inspire hundreds and thousands of our brothers to change their lives.

In 2009, Ezra, was looking to open a unique learning program. He wanted a program where those who don’t necessarily keep the “9-5” schedule could find a place to learn and grow in limud HaTorah. Agra D’Pirka – named after Ezra’s mother, Pesi Rochel Klein a’h, is that program. What started as a small program, is now a nationwide learning phenomenon.

We would convince the Jewish world to start their work days with the highest quality learning programs available. With Hashe-m’s help, our dream has been fulfilled.

We handpicked the best maggidei shiur that we could find.  We added premier shuls in the best locations.  We even added breakfast and pastries.  The result is Agra D’Pirka.

Now every Jewish male can start their day with two to three hours of high-quality learning in a pristine environment.  You could visit Flatbush, Boro Park or Kew Gardens Hills; Lakewood, Williamsburg, or Monsey; even out of town Miami, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Baltimore, and drink from the endless wellsprings of our Holy Torah.  In addition, our Spring Valley branch accommodates those who don’t have the flexibility to dedicate their mornings to Agra D’Pirka, by having evening shiurim.

In its short history, Agra D’Pirka has acted as a wellspring of Torah for thousands of Jews.

This morning kollel is a concept whose time has arrived.  This program must be brought to every major Torah community throughout the United States.

 

Please drop by and join us at any of our locations.  Come once and you will be convinced. Come yourself, bring a friend, and reap the rewards for eternity.

Rav Aharon Kahn.jpg

Rabbi Aharon Kahn

Flatbush

Rav Aharon Kahn was born in Bialystock, Poland just as the war was coming to an end. His parents were from Vilna. He arrived in America at the age of two. He is a talmid of Yeshiva R' Yaakov Yosef, Mesivta Bais Shraga and the Kollel Kodoshim under the leadership of HaGaon Rav Mendel Zaks, zllh”h, the son-in-law of the Chofetz Chaim.  Rav Kahn received Semichas Yadin Yadin, from Rav Zaks and a second Yadin Yadin from the Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaas, Rav Moshe Duber Rivkin, zllh”h. 

 

For 20 years, Rav Kahn learned with Rav Yosef Dov Soloveichik, zllh”h; for ten of those years he gave the chazara shiur. He also heard the shiurim of Rav Moshe Feinstein zllh”h at Tiferes Yerushalayim for several years.

 

Rav Kahn was Rosh Kollel Elyon of Yeshivas R' Yizchok Elchonon's Kollel Elyon from its inception in 1983 until 1998. He continues as a Rosh Yeshiva there to date. Rav Kahn has been giving shiurim since 1973 and has several thousand talmidim.  He lectures widely both in the States and recently in Israel as well. He has also written many Seforim.

 

Rav Kahn was Rav of the Downtown Talmud Torah Synagogue on the Lower East Side for 18 years. He moved in 1987 to the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn where he established a unique shul: Knesseth Bais Avigdor. The davening is sincere, and the learning is passionate. It is a place totally dedicated to Avodas HaShem. The shul is open all day and all night and is used by many hundreds of Yidden who come to learn there from far and wide.

 

At Knesseth Bais Avigdor, Rav Kahn at the initiative of R’ Ezra Klein, started giving shiurim on Mishlei with the comments of the Gaon of Vilna. This was the start of the nationwide initiative of learning for baalei batim which is, of course, Agra D'Pirka. After completing 8 1/2 years of shiurim and composing 5 volumes of mekoros (sponsored by R’ Ezra in honor and memory of his parents), a gala siyum was made and shiurim on Koheles Medrash Rabbah commenced. A second volume of the mekoros for the Koheles shiurim is due soon.

 

Rav Kahn's wife, Rebetzin Rochel Kahn, is the principal of the Bais Yaakov of the East Side. Their children and grandchildren, all of whom are dedicated to the learning and teaching of Torah, live in Lakewood, Toronto and Brooklyn.

At Agra D'Pirka Flatbush Rabbi Kahn gives a 10:40 am shiur Monday and Wednesday on Koheles with Medrash Rabbah
